Normally, a bridge that is replaced should be removed from the NRHP. Sometimes however the SHPO and Keeper are slow to make this removal, but regardless the bridge SHOULD be removed since NRHP requires a most bridges to be over 50 years of age.

I have updated this one to show that the photos are of a replacement. The question is, is the new bridge on the NRHP or was this only true of the old?
