Absolutely, any short-medium span pin connected truss dated after 1920 is suspect, although Independent Bridge Company of Pittsburgh and Vincennes Bridge Company of Vincennes, Indiana did build pin-connected trusses into the 1920s (for reasons which elude me).
I removed the date and added mention of likely relocation.
I doubt these pin-connected trusses are as new as 1940...Historic Aerials topographical maps don't show a crossing here prior to 1940, however, so I would bet the spans were relocated here.
Also, the 2008 NBI gives this span a build date of 1994...likely when the mid-span piers were added.

I agree. According to HA topographical maps, Nacimiento-Fergusson Road used to cross the San Antonio River about a mile to the southeast....maybe that was where the trusses were originally.
