Salt Fork Brazos River Bridge

Okay....It appears that the HAER photos shown for the Oriana Bridge actually belong to this bridge. There is no Street View for this span, but in the satellite view you can see that a truss bridge has been bypassed but remains. You can also make out that it is a polygonal chord through truss with multiple ponies on one end.

There is a mix-up somehow in these listings.....just not sure what is what.
