They seem to be significant modern structures. It's odd that they would be closed and up for adoption/demo.

Any idea when the arches were built?

Some of the NBI data for these bridges is wrong... it says that the bridges are modern and were built in 2013, and that they are in good condition as of 2016...

...however it would appear that such data is referring to the stringer bridge, as it was significantly rehabilitated in 2013 and would be in good condition in 2016.
