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

This bridge was built in 1947, and is an example of a standard steel stringer bridge design that is today in very poor condition. Some of the newer bridges of this style appear to be galvanized steel guardrails, but these guardrails just look like regular steel, accounting for why they have rusted so much. The extreme southwest guardrail panel on this bridge appears to have been replaced at some point. It is a different style, one not seen before. This bridge has a plaque on it, identifying Fred W. Moore as being on the road commission. Fred Moore is who the road a mile north of St. Clair Highway was named after. (Fred W. Moore Highway) Fred Moore served on the road commission for a number of years, and also started the salt factory in the city of St. Clair.
