I enjoy finding them in overgrown areas. For some reason it's more exciting to me.

That sure doesn't look to be "open to traffic", and it looks like it's been a while since they bypassed it.

Found this bridge on Nov 8, 2018. Has been left in place and Eagle Rd now bypasses it on the north side. Very overgrown and difficult to see much detail of bridge.
