I'd give that a yes.

The piers are reused, for sure, as the lion graffiti was there before the bridge project began.

I'm pretty sure this bridge was replaced. It was closed for several months for a "rehab" but the bridge that is there now looks little like this one. Perhaps the girders are original but everything above is new.
