I drove this section of road on Dec. 30, 2010, and there were no one lane bridges. I believe that this bridge has been replaced along with the bridge at Sni-A-Bar Creek.

The old abutment pictured is for the old Union Pacific railroad grade. You can follow it for about a mile where it meets up with the current track
