I took the liberty of trying to clean this page up by converting this page wholly over to the 2006 replacement bridge, adding a new page dedicated entirely to the 1914 crossing, and re-uploading the photos from this page that pertained to the 1914 bridge (namely photos #17 and #18). Could you please delete these two photos from this page as they are of the old bridge and have nothing to do with the 2006 structure?

Someone needs to clean this page up, its too big a job for my time and ability. There was a historic concrete arch here, but it was demolished in 2005 and replaced. Photos show the replacement bridge which I assume isn't even an arch. But the description here talks about the historic bridge.
