I will second Thomas’s concerns. On your first picture titled “Bridge”, is the bridge bent near the left side by the footing? I am just trying to get a frame of reference for what I am seeing.

You will have to paint your bus orange, but it shouldn't be an issue unless you're a cop.
Seriously, though, I agree with Thomas and Eric; the bridge doesn't look great and I think you should see if someone local can take a look at it and give you an opinion.

Well... Worse than saying a prayer and just driving over it each day? If you're willing to drive it, don't you think the other is pretty much grandfathered in?
What observing close and personal _may_ do is clarify your thinking by scaring the living beJesus out of you. Made _that_ decision real easy! <g> Gail didn't go into detail, but she did say that some neighbors park on the civilized side and walk across to their homes. That's kinda a sign, like when the forest goes all silent as a predator approaches. <G>

Or is it on a county road?
