If the bridge is truly 16 feet in length as listed here, the reason its not in the NBI is because as I understand it, only bridges over 20 feet are listed in the NBI.

For some reason, this bridge does not seem to be listed on the NBI database, it is fascinating for it's small size, the truss only stand about 30 inches above the road deck, and to be skewed at that small size is also a rarity. A real gem to find something so unusual.
