Based on the older topo this is probably the original site of the crossing.

Looks like it was moved there and placed on some concrete footers.

This bridge seems to be in a field. The river it supposed to cross seems to have shifted to the north. The road that it supposed to carry does not exist, but somebody with greater knowledge than I can chime in on this.
