The dedication sign shows the name for the US 70 bridge. When US 70 traffic was removed from this bridge the pedestrian bridge was designated the Bob Sheehan Memorial, keeping the Elmer Disspayne Sr designation for the bridge carrying the highway.

I think this bridge was replaced but preserved as part of the Stones River Greenway pedestrian trail.
