This swing bridge has been replaced.

While the satellite view shows that the new fixed bridge is operating and the swing bridge removed, the street view doesn't even show the construction of the new bridge, something that was very visible on my last visit to the site, in September, of 2009:

The pictures here are of the new Causeway, but the street view and data are for the old causeway.
