I came across this postcard of a bridge on Cauterskill Road.

It might the predecessor of the current bridge.

I'd say the build time for this location is off.

StreetView shows the Warren pictured here in two previous images, in 2012 and 2015. It goes from a very rusted color in the 2012 image to the current metallic color in the 2015 image.

That, in turn, can be explained by a 2013 repair job, which the NBI gives for this location. http://bridgereports.com/1387040

Further, they also give a 1991 build year, which would explain the Warren showing up in both the StreetView images and in the picture on here.

The only way a 2018-19 build checks out is if the Warren was replaced after that picture was taken.
