Bridge Documentation

This bridge no longer exists!

Bridge Status: Only the wooden substructure of this bridge remains!

HistoricBridges.org does not typically include the remains of long-lost bridges, except that this bridge helps set the context of this section of the Escanaba River, where the varying remains of at least three bridges can be found in the area. This particular bridge appears to have been a low-level crossing of the river. Only the timber piles remain. It is assumed that the superstructure was a timber stringer based on the timber substructure and the short spans (obvious from the number of piers used), but this is just a suspicion. Also, the bridge length given is rough estimates based on aerial imagery, and the span length, also an estimate, was derived by dividing the estimated bridge length by 24.
