Its probably a paper weight on some engineer's desk. Seriously, thats how a lot of them end up. They have no monetary value, but great sentimental value to those who have often used them over the years. Just because you do not see a new marker of the same type in the same location on the new bridge does not mean they did not set a new one. They probably did, in a different spot on or near the bridge, but it may be an entirely different looking marker. You may or may not be able to get such information from your state highway dept., depending on their regulations, and, frankly, upon what sort of mood the person you talk to about it happens to be in.
