This historic bridge was demolished and replaced in 2006!

Like metal truss bridges, there is a scattering of old steel stringer beam bridges scattered throughout the state. Most of these seem to have had lattice guardrails, which were mounted in odd ways often with the attachment under the stringers with buttresses holding them steady. This design often led to rust and collision damage and many of the bridges have lost their railings. This bridge is a good example of that design. It features a concrete deck with corrugated steel below, which was known as a jack-arch deck. What makes this bridge unusual is the lattice railings are a different design than usually seen. Perhaps this difference is to the the early construction date of this bridge, which is 1895. Compare this bridge to the demolished 27 Mile Road Beam Bridge in Macomb County.

After having been abandoned for some time, Lenawee County finally demolished this bridge.
