Whoever said that this bridge was collapsed or destroyed is wrong. This bridge (fortunately) is still here and open to traffic. I took pics today. Perhaps another bridge got confused with this one, but this bridge is still here. I changed the status to reflect this.

This bridge was destroyed by a logging truck in the fall of 2011. It was replaced by a modern concrete structure in the spring of 2013.

Looks like a riveted Warren truss from the 1920's

Perhaps it was moved, or more likely rehabed in 1981. Certainly not built.
