Tom Barrett at ODOT was kind enough to clear up the mystery. The historic bridge was indeed demolished and replaced. I include the MOA Tom sent as well as photos Tom provided of the interpretive signage.

This article appears to contradict my earlier finding (and that of the historic bridge inventory) that the bridge remains historic, and instead suggests all truss materials are new, bolted, and galvanized. http://www.galvanizeit.org/project-gallery/gallery/washingto...

I don't think this bridge was demolished. From Historic Bridge Inventory:

The 3 span, 267'-long bridge is a continuous, Warren deck truss. It was rehabilitated in 1999 with replacement of the original deck and railings.

I think this is the right bridge. It was on OH-124 over the Little Hocking River. Photo taken 5/24/08
