The bridge is not abandoned. Its not being used at this time by Union Pacific Railroad and is owned by the Army Corp of Engineers. The bridge is maintained and operational. It's against Federal law to abandon a drawbridge over a navigable waterway even if its not being used. The bridge either has to be maintained and operational, the water way navigable or the bridge removed.
