Bridge Documentation

Lapeer County used to have some of the most noteworthy railroad-related bridges in Michigan, one being the nationally significant Genesee Road Bridge, the other being the Summers Road Bridge through plate girder, a rare (for Michigan) highway plate girder which unfortunately was demolished before HistoricBridges.org was started.

The Columbiaville Bridge is not particularly significant, and while a truss bridge would look nicer and have more value, for Michigan the scene in Columbiaville on the Flint River is a scenic one, and this long-abandoned bridge adds to the scene, telling a tale of a time when trains rolled through Columbiaville.

The bridge is fenced off, but a new sign near the rail line suggests this might become a rail-trail.
