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:
