I drove this section of road on Dec. 30, 2010, and there were no one lane bridges. I believe that this bridge has been replaced along with the bridge at Little Sni-A-Bar Creek.

This bridge no longer exists. It is being replaced with a UCEB.

This bridge is in really sad shape. As of today, they have put orange barrels along the rails because the curbing is gone and all the rebar is visible. Just to the north you can see an old bridge abutment for the Union Pacific railroad.
