Yes, I was posting on several bridges when i did that last one about this one being gone and messed up.. However... these two twin bridges are Now really gone, They are being rebuilt at this moment. Highway 77 is closed off at Oswalt road and have to go over to I-35 up to Exit 24 to get back on 77. They are replacing both bridges at once.

I think you have this one confused with the one on 77 Scenic. This one is still standing-or at least it was when visited in 2008:

This bridge is Gone... redone about 2004 or 2003/ cant remember. It has been replaced with a concrete bridge now. Was a nice old bridge that was a one lane bridge.
