According to this website the old bridge was bypassed in 1978. According to the OK master bridge map, the new bridge was built in 1980. Was the road closed for 2 years?

Man, that is a hard bridge to attempt to photograph now. Bridges flank it on either side, and there is no parking for blocks in each direction.
