Description 

I believe this bridge collapsed in place sometime between the last NBI classification in 2013 and my recent visit in 2021. I could find no evidence on the internet that the county removed the bridge. The county has placed two warning signs and berms on the western side of the bridge on Kiln-Picayune Road slightly ahead of the mandatory detour onto Firetower Road.
