Went down to see this and the Kile bridge 5/26/18. A new slab bridge was installed sometime in 2016. Interesting enough, the state decided to memorialize the crossing by installing a bronze plague at the east end of the new crossing.

Kile Bridge in this same county was bypassed on a new alignment and left standing. I see no reason why the same thing couldn't take place here!
