Bridge Documentation

This bridge is one of two abandoned truss bridges on this also-abandoned section of Green Road that crosses the river at a point where it splits into two channels forming a small island. This is the larger north channel bridge and it is noted in Michigan for retaining (in part) its ornamental portal cresting, an unusual detail for a rural bridge. Please note that unlike many long-closed bridges in Michigan, this bridge and roadway has been fully abandoned by the county and is now on private property and not open to the public.

The style of portal bracing on this bridge resembles a bridge in Indiana, but it is not known if the same builder built this bridge.
