Hines Drive has a number of rigid-frame overpasses that cross
over it, and they tend to either be old examples of rigid-frames (1930s) or
relatively late (1950s) examples. This is one of the older examples, and as such
is much more significant than the newer ones. As one of the older bridges, a
greater amount of aesthetic details can be found. Although the original railings
have been replaced and some spalling has occurred, the aesthetic details
are apparent in the detailing on the corners of the abutments and on the edge of
the superstructure. The bridge also has decorative pillars that rise above the
deck a short distance at the end of each abutments.
A nearby bridge over Middle River Rouge was also constructed
for Six Mile Road at the same time as this bridge and the two bridges are very
similar in design and appearance.
