The entry was based on the news article with a bit of additional research. The photo you mention, however, is credited to Leo Majerus.

Mr. Backlin more than likely added this bridge as a result of an image from a newspaper showing flooding. The bridge appears to be an abandoned section of road, possibly on an old alignment. I believe I have the right coordinates but correct them if you must.

The article is below:

You might be able to incorporate the image taken by Paula Langhurst since this is for research use, not commercial.
