Bridge Status: This bridge was demolished and replaced!
This is an increasingly uncommon example of a small-scale bridge using a railing design unique to Michigan, and matching the architecture of other larger period bridges. Architecturally, it fits in with concrete camelback and girder bridges that were being built at this time in Michigan. Although not a girder itself, the general architectural expression has been maintained with a solid parapet railing with inset rectangles and rounded ends giving a hint of the shape that larger concrete girder bridges would have had. Small scale bridges with this railing type were built as concrete slabs and t-beams, as well as steel stringers. Some counties also adapted and modified the architectural details.
This one was unusually wide as it carried two different roads. The span was less than 20 feet. Bridges of this type dated to the 1920s and 1930s.
