Description 

http://www.brian894x4.com/OPandErailroad.html has a good write up about this railroad, including a short paragraph about this bridge. The bridge was originally built in 1914, but was installed at it's present location in 1948. The line was abandoned in 1954, all the tracks were removed but the bridge was left behind. Both approaches were removed sometime later.
