I took a look at it and I noticed two things:

1.  That old way which is supposed to be a bridge is not tagged as bridge.
Maybe the routine algo regards a highway without a bridge as a faster route?

2.  The new bridge has a motorroad:no tag while the old highway has only got
the highway:trunk tag... maybe this has an effect on routing too?
