I replaced it with a satellite view.
The street view picture is of the bridge on FM 1263. It is not the Oriana bridge. That bridge is located on CR 437 WSW of Peacock, Texas. The pictures that show the intact bridge are of the Oriana bridge.
The street view is correct here; the photos are of a different bridge. Tony Dillon caught this yesterday and commented; apparently, the photos are for the Salt Fork Brazos River Bridge:
The street view shows a two span through truss busted up. The photos show a single span through truss and two pony trusses. looks like the wrong bridge in street view
Tony, good catch here--you're definitely right. This bridge is much further away from its replacement than the one in the HAER photos, which I should have noticed.
I didn't look at the street view Matthew.....just the satellite view. Looks like the channel pier is completely gone which would suggest a major flooding event occurred.
But now as I compare the street view with the HAER photos I see that this isn't even the same bridge. We need some help from someone in Texas to straighten this out.
I was shocked--and extremely saddened--to look at the street view of this location, only to find that this bridge is nothing but a heap of twisted metal laying in the river. (:`( It looks like the result of flooding or some major natural disaster. Does anyone know what happened to it?
Bridge skeleton is located 10 miles North of Aspermont on FTM 1263.
