This bridge is configured as two parallel bridges, one for each direction of traffic. The bridge has lost its original railings. The bridge is noted mainly for its size; it is both wide and long. Its other noteworthy feature is that it uses a pin and hanger system in the stringers. Michigan built many such bridges in the mid-20th Century, however this is one of the larger surviving examples. The bridge is also curved with superelevation. The bridge has a variety of concrete piers/bents that are not identical, each designed to meet the needs of its location under the bridge. The curved design and variety of substructure elements make this a bridge that took more effort to design than the average bridge from this period in history. The bridge crosses Plaster Creek but also an abandoned railroad line.
