Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is a five panel pin-connected Pratt pony truss. The main truss span sits on caissons, and features a stringer approach on either end. Abutments are concrete. With a main span of nearly 80 feet, this bridge is among Michigan's longest remaining pony truss bridge spans.

Northern lower Michigan has an extremely small number of remaining metal truss bridges. The preservation of each surviving example is essential. Among the surviving examples, this bridge is of decent length for a pony truss and retains good historic integrity. It also remains open to traffic, although if it it not preserved soon, continuing deterioration may result in structure closure. The time to preserve this bridge for continued light vehicular use is now.
