Okay, I guess that answers my question about the NBI no longer inspecting the bridge.
At least as a private bridge, it is probably safe from demolition. Hopefully this will save it from the same fate as the Fall River Marsh arch that was demolished by Greenwood County a few years ago. I am glad that the landowner allowed you to visit the bridge. That is always an appreciated gesture.
I have known many trusses in Kansas to get transferred to private ownership, but this is the first time I have seen a Marsh arch go through the process.
The NBI has not been updated for this bridge since 2007. According to the Google Maps, it is still standing. Perhaps it has been closed. It is/was the last remaining Marsh arch in Greenwood County.
I have visited this bridge, and I have a photo or two of it somewhere.
