Bing Bird's Eye calls the road McCarey road. It must have fallen into disuse and they turned it back to farmland. The abutments look to be in pretty good shape. Look in the 1992 NBI for a McCarey road bridge.

Anyone please comment on this bridge: I've not seen a design quite like this one before. Also, anyone have any idea where the road that it was located on could have gone. When adding it I only speculated that it could have been on the road leading into the Milky Way Farm property.
