This bridge was demolished and replaced in 2006!

Despite the name of the road, this is not a toll road. Perhaps it was long ago. There are a lot of old highways around here since the Detroit-Toledo corridor has historically been a very important one. in fact this road branches off of the Dixie Highway, was a highway from a long time ago. This bridge is a bit south of the Jefferson Road / Harbin Drive Bridges.

This bridge is a classic example of a standard late 1920s and early 1930s stringer bridge. It features the typical abutment railing design, as well as the typical bridge railing design that is found in the older examples. With a 1927 construction date, this is indeed an older example. It retains good historic integrity, but has experienced some spalling. U.S. Turnpike is not overly busy, but it does carry a lot of heavy trucks that are hauling gravel. The amount of truck traffic this bridge carries no doubt puts stress of the structure, but at the same time it shows the strength of a structure that has lasted for around three quarters of a decade.
