Spring flooding in 2011 washed out a double culvert at this crossing on McDonald Creek. The road was realigned and the truss installed. The truss had been salvaged from somewhere in Richland County, Montana and had been sitting in the field near the crossing awaiting installation.
Looking at Google Earth historical imagery, it looks to me like the bridge and approaching roadway were washed away in a flood, see this photo from November 2011, and to me it would appear that the truss was salvaged and reinstalled on a new alignment... the new alignment being set at a location where there was no flood damage... because it looks like the flood changed the course of the river to some extent or washed away the bank completely where the old road was.
Bridge says it was built in 2012 via the NBI, Bing shows the bring sitting a field, Google shows it over the creek with a possible replacement being built or is the truss replacing the other bridge.
