On the map above the street view click on satellite and zoom in maximum and you can see it. Poster below says it was replaced in 2009, but the 2008 NBI data showed the concrete slab bridge already existing. The 2006 NBI data showed the truss as being there.

From the satellite imagery, the bridge is still there with the road having by-passed it. From the street view there is a gate on the by passed part of the road that leads up to it. Again from the street view, there is a modern concrete slab bridge on the by-pass. Looks like it is abandoned.

This bridge is now closed to all traffic and was replaced by a new bridge in 2009.
