Kilbourne Bridge

I am inclined to believe that the bridge pictured above stood till 1959/1960.

The present bridge, over Alum Creek, along SR 521, was constructed in 1960 according to Buckeye Assets (ODOT's bridge innovatory)

Someone else has shown me a photo of that crossing, from the 1940s or 50s, that shows the same bridge, but with a whitewashed finish.

When was this bridge removed and was it replaced by the bridge that is currently in Kilbourne, at the same location. or was the bridge that was lost further South on Alum Creek?

Thank you
