Depending on the the transition onto the bridge, I would recommend a bit more speed. Perhaps a second gear run so that your momentum will most likely carry you and the bike to the other side if the bridge starts to collapse.

Keep the front tire light when using the momentum that drtbk4ever is talking about. Could you imagine the results of decent 2nd gear speed and dropping the front threw that rickety old bridge. Oh and video tape all who cross for insurance reasons and for the humor factor.
Yeah, that could be nasty. Maybe a 2nd gear wheelie.
Or, it looks like a short enough span that if the transition onto the bridge has a nice smooth lip, one may be able to fly it. Third gear outta do it.

Doesn't look too bad until you see the second photo. I'd be saying to myself "Don't look down, don't look down".
I think those photos were a couple years old, the bridge deck is full of holes now. It's basically years of logs piled on top of each other while the bottom continues to decay The cyclone fence might hold
