So am I reading that right, that the vessel basically could have taken out the entire pier and the bridge would still be okay, because the load would be redistributed to the other piers?

My reading is the deck would still be standing and that is good, but that's far from stating the bridge would be okay.The pier would still need replaced and that's a year out of commission at least. But Grandpa's '65 stepside would stay out of the drink.
