Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

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. Among the rigid-frame bridges remaining on Hines Driver and the River Rouge, this one stands out as one of the three earliest surviving examples. All the other examples date to 1947 or later, making these three earlier examples quite a bit older and thus more significant. Like most of the old bridges along the River Rouge parkways, this bridge has unfortunately lost its original railings. This bridge on Plymouth Road has architectural detailing on the abutments that is very similar to the architectural details seen on some of the concrete arch bridges that the county built during this period, such as the nearby River Rouge Bridge located almost immediately east of this bridge.
