Michigan Metal Truss Bridges

Highway Bridges As Outlined in the 1995 Michigan Bridge Inventory: Survey Sample

An exploration of truss bridges remaining in Michigan in 2006

Introduction

This table is an interactive living document that is designed to reflect the remaining truss bridges in Michigan. If you are interested in viewing the original and complete 1995 Michigan Historic Bridge Inventory, please click here. This page also offers an old 1978 inventory of noteworthy old bridges in Michigan.

In 1995, Michigan conducted a survey of potentially historic bridges, which included a vast number of bridges built before 1956, of all structure types. The bridges were surveyed, and the final list was then narrowed down to include bridges that had been determined to have a certain amount of significance. This does not mean that all bridges in the inventory are listed as historic, or are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, it simply means that they have enough significance to perhaps warrant further investigation. I personally consider all of these bridges historic however! The copy of the inventory I have lists the bridges that were included in the final list, as well as bridges which were excluded from the list due to lack of significance or poor historic integrity. In the 1995 inventory, a desire to learn more about the remaining truss bridges in the state was shown. As a result, all truss bridges that retained integrity and were not surveyed in Michigan's initial historic bridge survey, were included in the list. This means that this list should be a complete lists of all truss bridges in Michigan, with a couple exceptions. First, those without "integrity" might not be here... this does not seem to occur often. Second, truss bridges for which even the local county road commission does not have info for may not be here, like Richman Road Bridge. I have included all truss bridges from MDOT's website, which seem to include the truss bridges from that initial historic bridge survey, to try to make it as complete of a list as possible. I have cross-checked this list with a few road commissions, and have found this to be a nearly complete list of all truss bridges in Michigan. Note that 1900 was described as the default date, meaning that if the date was uncertain (usually with the older bridges) they just put 1900 down.

Purposes and Needs

With all that said, the purpose of including this list on my site is to allow people to explore bridges that I have not yet visited. Be warned that this is an aging inventory, and is a decade old. A new inventory is being made this summer by MDOT, and I hope to get a copy of it also. I am sure the population drop for truss bridges will be staggering, and will be an interesting comparison to this page. Many of the truss bridges listed here may be demolished. If you visit a bridge on this list, and it is demolished, please help me and other visitors out by letting me know. Also, I will gladly accept visitor-submitted photos for this page, for bridges that I do not have a page for. I have put the "X" icon next to bridges that have been reported as demolished. I have put an arrow icon next to bridges that I know have moved. Links to visitor submitted photos, MDOT's Bridge Page, or my page for the bridge will be provided if they exist in the Comments / Photos / Links section.

Unidentified MDOT Website Bridges

A few bridges on MDOT's Historic Bridge Website have neither a photo or a description. Some of them looked like they might be truss bridges based on date and location, etc. But without a photo, I have no idea what sort of a bridge they may be. Some of the bridges here might be truss bridges. If you are in the area, I encourage you to visit these bridges and report your findings.
