This was is one of those bridges with stone spandrel walls and corrugated steel arch. They were often built in the 1930s; this is apparently a late example. I posted the Historic Bridge Inventory photos. You can barely see the stone abutment wingwall in the Street view. The stone is clearly visible in Bing Bird's Eye View. Based on the Street View versus the inventory photos, it appears they cut down the parapet and replaced it with Armco guardrail.

7/28/13 Couldn't tell if there's an arch there or not. Steep embankment & muddy. Zoomed in on the satellite view & it doesn't look like an arch. Lots of traffic when we were there.
