This bridge is historically significant as a documented example of a concrete arch bridge in Michigan designed by famous bridge engineer Daniel Luten. The bridge's original concrete balustrade railings have been lost but otherwise the bridge retains good historic integrity. It serves a road inside the cemetery. It would be nice to see replicas of the original railings placed on the bridge.
There are some tiny foot bridges in the valley below this bridge with some interesting details that have long been abandoned.
