Hodgsons Mill Bridge
Posted December 27, 2012, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

Almost certainly relocated by private owner. I don't think a bridge person would bolt a bearing plate to the abutment. I suppose if they left the other end of the truss free this could work, but not normal procedure.
