Bridge Documentation

This bridge no longer exists!

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

This bridge was demolished and replaced with a culvert in 2005.

This is a tiny bridge that crosses a branch of what becomes the Pine River. From above, it is most notable for having an unusual guardrail design. From below, it is unusual because it has a wooden deck. Dirt on the top of the bridge prevented this from being seen from the top. Flowers and vines growing on and near the structure added to the beauty.

St. Clair County Road Commission came, tore away the trees and flowers, demolished this little bridge, dug all the life out of the ditch in the immediate area, and threw in a corrugated culvert. Both history and nature lose under our nation's transportation system, whose current funding focuses on letting bridges rot, and then replacing them, rather than engaging in routine preventative maintenance to save money, history, and environment.
