Also, On the rare chance that it was there I checked for a plaque on the east side of the bridge, only thing there was spray painted tonnage marks, could not cross to check west side of bridge

I would argue that this one should be called " Harbor St. Bridge", I clearly saw this one at the intersection of Harbor and Gondola today, it is a continuation of Harbor street to the west where it crosses the Creek, unless there is a duplicate Warren 3 panel riveted bedstead just north of this spot which I sort of doubt.... possibly pin change south a bit just a tick west of Harbor and Gondola over the Creek
