Sadly, this bridge is no longer with us...it was demolished January 2015. RIP. I'd liked to have seen it preserved. I'm always saddened by the demise of unique landmarks.

The old bridge suffered yet another vehicle impact in August, and was closed for good. It's replacement is already being built. I've not found out yet what is to become of the old bridge, but from what I've been told, the most recent collision cracked some beams. It's most likely done for.

The bridge is doing just fine. Just an updated photo to show the fairly new modern guardrail that has been added just off the east approach.
