Bridge Documentation

This bridge no longer exists!

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

This bridge was demolished and replaced in 2014 under Local Bridge Program!

This bridge is one of only two surviving examples of straight concrete through girder bridges in Calhoun County. It retains a plaque on it attributing the building of the bridge to B. C. Lord of Clayton Michigan. The Trunk Line Bridge label on the bridge is testimony to Michigan Avenue's US-12 past. US-12 is currently aligned much further south, replacing the US-112 designation down there for what is often called Chicago Road. This change occurred after I-94 was completed.

Armco railings added to this bridge greatly detract from the beauty of this bridge. This bridge is also suffering from spalling, due to salt application on roadways. It is however one of a rapidly declining historic bridge type in Michigan.
