Vinsetta Boulevard is a residential street that meanders along with no particular sense of direction. It turns out that Vinsetta Boulevard follows the path of the Red Run River, which today has been covered up west of approximately Dequindre Road. Before it was covered up, the river, little more than the size of a small creek at this point, flowed openly in the median of Vinsetta Boulevard. As such, roads intersecting with Vinsetta Boulevard required bridges to span Red Run River. When the river was covered up, the bridges were not demolished, but were simply left in place. They remain today with only their railings and the very smallest upper portion of the spandrel wall remaining visible. Based on what is visible, the presumed span length, and the significant camber of the deck that remains visible today, these bridges are assumed to be closed spandrel arch bridges.
