This bridge was built in 1923 to serve as a trunkline bridge for what was in 1923 M-16. This would become US-16 in 1926. This route was later retired with the completion of I-96 in 1962, which also had retired this bridge as a trunkline bridge.

This bridge is on the same former trunkline route as the Cleveland Street Bridge. This bridge is, like the Cleveland Street Bridge, in excellent condition, and is a good example of its type. Unlike the Cleveland Street Bridge, this structure is smaller and is built to the 60 foot standard plan, which did not include the pierced openings. Together, with Cleveland Street, these two structures are the only remaining structures of this type in Ottawa County. Because they are both in excellent structural condition, and are examples of a significant structure type, their preservation is essential.
