The bridge was restored and opened for bikes and pedestrians in 2012. Unfortunately, according to the article the long term plans are not good:

Still open to hikers and bikers. Great bridge in a very beautiful setting.

The Province Line Road bridge over Stony Brook is not open to traffic and hasn`t been since the early 1970`s !!
