Thanks for the updated photos Jay!

Nathan was correct in that this bridge was bypassed with a new bridge on a straightened alignment. So just maybe this bridge can be given a new use in the near future.

Looks like the bridge was bypassed with a new bridge but the historic bridge abandoned and not demolished, per Google imagery.
