Online Map Strangeness

So today I read about the I495 bridge in Delaware that was closed for major repairs. I tried to find it on Google Maps and it doesn't exist (http://bit.ly/SHxm70). I tried Mapquest and yes, there is was (http://www.mapquest.com/us/de/wilmington). Finally I put Google Maps in Satellite view and yes there it is (http://bit.ly/1ljgiuH). So, do you think it was correct for Google Maps to remove the bridge from their normal view like it never existed?
