Sunset Highway Bridge UPDATE

Sorry, I didn't zoom out on your map, as I've been familiar with this bridge for years and recognized it instantly when I saw the photo. Now I see that the map location above is 20 miles off, and to my knowledge there was never any similar bridge at the location indicated above.

Go to the coordinates above and check the street view from the bridge that replaced this one and you'll see it's the same bridge.

This bridge is listed a "Lost" but that is an error, the bridge is located a little north of the spot marked on your map, check the actual location at 4711'28.1"N 12101'00.1"W.
