Yeah, unfortunately those stone abutments finally gave way.

Too bad, because the trusses were in good shape.

This bridge collapsed from neglect around 2015. The wreckage of the bridge was pulled from the channel by the county, but the remnants remain, on private property on the north side of the former crossing.
