Nathan,

I thought I read that here or on your site but couldn’t find the listing.

Since 1993, the trusses are decorative and no longer function and the bridge is no longer listed in the NBI as a truss, which is why the bridge probably escaped being listed on this website.

I thought this one was on here previously. Really surprised that it hasn't been listed. I'll post pictures later.
