There is a bridge at that crossing. It goes over a creek.
But that bridge was initially designed for traffic, therefore it doesn't qualify for this thread. If not, then any abandoned bridge could qualify.

Alright, the Bridge Tar River Trail qualifies.

That one carries pedestrian traffic. This thread is about bridges that carry non-mammal "things" (like barrels (above) or water).

Irrigation canal over I-82 in Kennewick, WA.  Presumably the canal was there before the freeway.

Smith Dairy has a pipeline structure that carries ice cream mix between its milk and ice cream plants in Orrvillle, Ohio. It crosses over the intersection of Vine Street and Church Street, and even has a mount for a 4-way beacon attached to the side although I've never seen a signal mounted off it.

There's this pipeline suspension bridge over the Mississippi
Many log flumes are bridges
It's not really traffic if it's animals, is it?

That log flume comment actually reminds something. Erie, PA has a roller coaster that crosses a road! This might be in a weird category of technically having traffic, but the traffic is a roller coaster, so I’ll put it here in case anyone finds it interesting.
