Walking Bridge

I looked at the bridge next to the Walking Bridge and saw that it is now a canal aqueduct over the river. I tried to find more info about it but can't find anything at the moment. I also found another truss bridge just west of here, which is the old US 550 Bridge. It is a parker truss and has pony truss approaches. I have added both bridges on the site, but need more info. So anyone wanting to help, please do so.

This is a good find, but I am also looking at the silver bridge beside it. That one looks like a potential Bedstead through truss, which would be a very rare find.
