Apparently the land owner across the creek has cleared and renovated the bridge for their driveway. I drove out there expecting to find the ruin in the pictures and it's now in great shape.

I lived right around the corner from there on Rock City Road for a few months back in 2006. Wish I was into bridges then, I could drove over and taken some photos with my now antiquated digital camera.
