Judging by the ariel photos via Google Map and Bing Map, this bridge is long gone. There's nothing left of it.

@Glyn: I suspect this to be the case. I visited the area on July 20, 2021. This bridge is supposed to cross Oakohay Creek on CR 29, but that road ends prior to the coordinates provided by Google. The red arrow on the attached photo indicates where CR 22/29 end--travelling further northeast from this point would put one onto fenced private land. If the bridge still exists, it is on posted private property.
