Bridge Documentation

This unusual curved chord through riveted plate girder appears to have been built from salvaged materials that may have not been bridge-related. For example, overhead building cranes. The evidence of salvaged materials is clear both from the unusual design and also the many empty rivet holes in the girders. Whatever they came from, the girders are quite old. The large holes at the ends of the girders were formed by punching a series of small holes in a circle, resulting in a toothed hole... this is something seen in older steel and iron, usually older than 1910. A sign next to the bridge indicates that the bridge was "Donated by Ray and Julie (Fleis) Watkoski of Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1983 and states "Engineered and Construction Supervised by Edward V. Fleis of Cedar, Michigan. This likely refers to when the structure was erected here, but does not shed light as to the actual age of the girders forming the bridge superstructure.
