Yeah. Going back in time on Google Earth shows the old bridge on a different alignment slightly to the north of this bridge.

The picture I took on July 13, 2011 must be the new replacement bridge.

The Clay Hill Road bridge in Fort Ann, NY was replaced in 2009. The new bridge is a standard truss design using plate girder beams. It was constructed on temporary foundations next to the old bridge and moved into position after the old bridge was demolished.
