Key Toll Bridge (Old US 66)

I have photographed the columns on the east side of the river, but I have never noticed any remains on the west side. It was my understanding that they are gone. It is just a short ways upstream to the old railroad bridge, I do not know if it is on this site or not. However, I would not recommend visiting this location in a Mustang like one idiot did.
