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

This bridge is a lightweight riveted pony truss with a wooden deck and concrete abutments. Fading red paint still remains on the bridge. The bridge no longer has any railings. The original railings may have been pipe railings, based on remaining mounting rings on some members. There is v-lacing on the verticals. The truss superstructure was listed as "poor" in the 2004 National Bridge Inventory, which is actually rather good for a closed structure. The visual appearance of the bridge during a 2006 visit seemed to confirm this assessment. This is a bridge that could be relocated and restored for a reasonable cost. If the 1897 date given by the historic bridge inventory is correct, then this bridge is historically significant as a very early example of riveted connections on a highway truss in Michigan.
