Microsoft's Bing birds-eye view still had the old truss bridge visible.

Took a trip to DeSoto this past weekend. I noticed the old truss bridge was replaced with a "UCEB"-type bridge.

When I came home from work this past week, it looked like they already had this bridge down. They've had the road closed to it for over a week now.
