Could it possibly be in storage?

I know of several bridges in Indiana that have been replaced and are being stored for a period of at least 10 years. These spans are being stored by their respective counties. Some of then are listed on the INDOT Historic Bridge Marketing Program page.

Is this bridge bypassed? The attached Inventory Report from ODOT's bridge database seems to suggest the bridge is replaced, indicating a pre-stressed concrete slab over the Dry Run on TR-125.
