The road this bridge is on is officially signed MacArthur Blvd. That road originally linked Marshall (to the north) and Lovell (to the south). The road currently T's with E0650 Rd, but originally continued strait south for about a half mile before crossing west over the railroad tracks and continuing on south to E0660 Rd and Lovell. I'm not sure when this span of road was closed though. As of today the bridge is still there and open to traffic. Very pretty drive.
