Buckhannon River Bridge

Highways Through History has this being replaced in 2015. I'm not sure how to independently verify that, though one clue that that would be accurate is that this disappears from the NBI after 2013.

Also, they list the builder as an Edwin Starcher Bridge Company, who aren't yet identified with any other bridges on the site.
