Sometimes the google map does odd things to straight lines. The topo shows the line (almost as wide as the bridge) touching the bridge on the SW corner.

If the lines on the satellite imagery are correct this bridge is entirely in the state of South Dakota, and not partially in Nebraska.

This is a beautiful setting.
