If it does indeed exist it would be an increasingly rare example of a Warren Bedstead truss.

Definitely worth checking out!

Looking at the map, there is just about no way this bridge is accessible, if it still exists at all. I will try to get out there on my dirt bike and check it out, but it doesn't look promising.
