Like other bridges in this county that are near Lake Michigan, this bridge's size is due to the ravine it crosses, rather than the volume of whatever water flows under it. Here on Genesee Street, multiple concrete arch spans were used to cross the ravine and the small stream that flows through it. An interesting comparison is the nearby crossing on County Street, visible in the background in the photo on this page. There, the ravine was filled in, and only a small concrete culvert is present to allow the stream the flow through. It is quite a contrast to the size of this arch bridge. The arch bridge's original railings have been replaced, and so the bridge looks modern to the average driver crossing the bridge. Underneath where the structure is located however, the arch retains its original design. Despite evident repairs to the concrete in the past, substantial deterioration is apparent, particularly with the deck system, but also present on the arch superstructure as well.
