No, I did not. This was taken in 2015. I need to revisit since I live only an hour away now.

Nice Shots Sherman! Have been to west end of this one, hard to get plaque view due to angle and trees. Did you venture out on deck to feel vibration?

Bridge plaque still there. Deck is shot but bridge appears to be in remarkably good shape. Needs rust help but no section loss visible. Abutments appear fine, concrete probably 1970's Original blue stone abutments used as rip rap. Does vibrate when you walk on it. If it had deck would not hesitate to drive on it. HAVE driven over far more questionable spans.

Thanks Tony, travelled by this Bridge awhile back on East side of river. Water WAS REALLY high. Bridge Plaque is on West side and I believe it was still there/ Deck missing in center and Bridge actually vibrated when I attempted to step out on it. Had been there 2o some years ago for a winter picnic and was out on bridge when ice went out. A large tree actually rolled up out of flood waters and struck bridge. Ended picnic. Anyway will try to get to west end to confirm your observation

Looks like the bridge will be restored for pedestrian use:
