Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a small arch bridge, but for several reasons it should be considered historically significant on a local basis. This small but beautifully designed and decorated bridge is unlike all the other concrete arch bridges which have been documented in Flint. Rather than the traditional balustrade railings that have urn-shaped balusters seen on many of Flint's arch bridges, this bridge features attractive balustrade-like railings that are composed of a series of pieced openings in the shape of a gothic arch. The design is reminiscent of designs seen in other states, but is very unusual in Michigan. These unusual railings curve outward at the ends, giving the bridge a flared design. The bridge's arch superstructure is also handsomely detailed and shaped with a number of architectural elements that give the bridge a beautiful appearance. The bridge is also noteworthy today as one of the few arch bridges in Flint that has not been demolished and remains with good structural and historic integrity.
