MoDOT recently announced the Long Creek Bridge on MO 86 will be replaced with a bridge next to it.

The original intent was to use it as a combination ped/bike crossing but it is on the wrong side of the new bridge. There is a nice plaza at the north end but there is a large wrought iron fence that appears to fully block access.,-96.0031466,3a,75y,276.93h,93.93t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sZXzuWBi30RiAzr_VptFG9w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

Max Rockatansky:
Apparently the Rio Dell Bridge on US 101 was built alongside its predecessor circa 1941.  The previous bridge opened in 1914 as part of the Redwood Highway and was condemned once it was replaced. 

Catching Slough Bridge, built 1993 to replace the old drawbridge next to it.

Here's one I just noticed the other day: NY 63 over the Genesee River in Geneseo, NY.
