This bridge is one of s small number of remaining curved t-beam overpasses on I-75 south of Detroit that retain original railings. The bridge has had Armco guardrails added in front of the original railings, but otherwise retains historic integrity. Two of the curved t-beam bridges on this freeway were listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Although one of those two stands out for not having Armco guardrails added, those two bridges do not really offer anything more than these other curved t-beams. As a result, HistoricBridges.org considers all of the curved t-beams on this freeway with original railings to have historic value because they all represent the earliest use of this very attractive expressway overpass that was built on Michigan freeways from 1954 through about 1961. These t-beams are also distinguished by their unique curved abutment railings which are not seen on curved t-beam overpasses on other freeways.
