Bridge Documentation

All that remains of this King Bridge Company bridge is the ornate guardrails with cast iron posts and the bronze plaques at the center of the span. Although the actual structure is gone, the beautiful guardrails and plaques that were a part of the old bridge still remain, and are worth a visit if you happen to be on Belle Isle. A similar bridge is nearby, the Central Avenue Bridge, which has also been replaced (actually, it was replaced twice) and had the railings set on a new bridge in the same way as well. There once was a third bridge of similar style (see the second photo below) that no longer exists.
