This bridge is one of a number of concrete rigid-frame bridges
that cross rivers and roads over and on Hines Drive as well as on some of the
other roads that run through the River Rouge parkways. They were designed by the
Wayne County Road Commission, and are somewhat of an anomaly in Michigan.
Elsewhere in the state, other counties as well as the Michigan State Highway
Department never appear to have built rigid-frame bridges very frequently, so
few remain today. As such, the group of rigid-frame bridges along River Rouge
stand out in Michigan as something unusual. This is one of the later examples of
the design, and is not as architecturally adorned as some of the older
rigid-frame bridges in the area.
