Broadway Street Bridge (1908)
Posted September 9, 2021, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

In attempting to find whether the three bridges listed for this location could be directly linked in order, I found an extensive photo collection to that effect. (For me, the main question was whether the Parker truss was directly followed by the 1978 beam.)

In other words, Yes - and then some.
