https://goo.gl/maps/rTRFFbTwtPF2 I believe that's what you mean.

When I go to "add bridge" and insert those coordinates, I don't see it listed

If you know the location of a bridge, and enter it, one of the things listed on the right (with county, waterway, etc) is other bridges there. I see the two south of it (where you originally posted), but nothing where I just linked.

No,Dana and kay.The bridge I'm talking about is between this one and the Koppel Bridge.It also crosses over this rail line.You can see it on satellite very easily.I don't know if i mentioned it but it's abandoned from what i see.
