Thanks Nathan,

What is amazing is how many new concrete slabs are now in the area.

According to the historic bridge inventory the bridge of unknown construction date (ca. 1905) was moved to this location in 1924 where it rests on 1868 abutments. A concrete pier and steel stringer approach span were added due to the length of the relocated bridge being shorter.

This bridge is a few miles west of the Crosswicks Creek, Dean and Westbrook, Phoenix column through truss bridge. The bridge is not pin connected so I suspect it was newly built in 1924.
