Well - I was close! Actually December of '13, as it turns out (see BH 51953, which turns out to be a duplicate of this bridge; I've already sent in the request to merge).

It's quite overgrown by the time of the 2011 StreetView, but that's the last one that shows it's still there. 2014 - gone. The 2013 aerial seems to show it's still there.

This bridge was destroyed in December 2013 due to it being too low by Federal standards for nearby Interstate entrance ramp approach. The stone abutments remain in place as well as the swing bridge over Swan Creek to the North of Collingwood Extension. A through truss bridge to the South about half a mile over the former New York Central also remains. It was raised by CSX and placed on I beam seats to gain clearance. The bridges were last used about 1980 when several warehouses still had rail delivery.
