Too bad if this old bridge walking path is closed.

Tried to get more pics April 2014. Both ends of the access road are gated and marked private property.

Yup. Nathan is correct. The streetview on the Bridge Street Bridge can be posed just like the above picture. (With a pickup truck in the shot.)

I think the Parker truss photo belongs on this page:

The listing here is clearly for a pony truss, verified by satellite.

The listing says this is a pony truss, but the photograph shows a very nice Parker through truss.
