Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a good example of a Michigan concrete through girder bridge. It retains perfect historic integrity including the original plaques. The bridge is structurally in good shape, however a rehabilitation would ensure that this bridge continues to be in good shape. The worst part of the bridge is the substructure, which is listed as "fair" condition, which really is not that bad. The main item of concern in the substructure is some cracking and spalling in the abutments. The number of surviving concrete girders in Michigan that have good integrity and no widespread spalling is decreasing; preservation should be considered for the better examples. In addition, Livingston County does not have many bridges with significant historic value, and as such this is one of the most important bridges in the county. It is also on a very quiet rural gravel road. As such, this would be a bridge worthy of preservation consideration.
