The Hibbard Road Bridge is an example of a state standard plan for a straight
chord through girder in Michigan. The bridge is unaltered, but unfortunately it
suffers from severe deterioration in the form of advanced cracking and spalling.
The bridge highlights the importance of preserving those girders which remain in
better condition than this one, by serving as a warning about what can happen to
a bridge if it is not maintained and rehabilitated when needed. The spalling not
only affects the structural integrity of the bridge, it also destroys the
architectural detailing on the bridge, reducing the historic integrity as well.
