Bridge Documentation

The Hogarth Avenue Bridge is noteworthy as one of the few examples of an Interstate highway pedestrian overpass that retains its original R4 style railings. The bridge spans the freeway with a girder and floorbeams system, with the girders and floorbeams being rolled beams. The girders are ribbed. The floorbeams are riveted and bolted to the girders. The bridge spans the freeway in an odd fashion. The pier in the center of the freeway is what one would expect, but the fact that there are two spans east of the pier yet only one longer span to the west of the pier gives the bridge an unexpected asymmetrical appearance. Concrete ramp systems provide an approach to each end of the bridge. The ramps feature tall R4 railings, while the main spans feature shorter R4 railings which are mounted on top of the girders. Cyclone fencing has been added to the bridge, although the fencing is less extreme than that seen on many overpasses in urban areas in Michigan. Either way, the cyclone fencing is a major detriment to the aesthetic qualities of the bridge.
