The National Bridge Inventory gives a 1920 date for this bridge. This appears to be incorrect, since the earliest examples of this bridge design have always dated to the around 1927, and those earlier examples also usually feature a railing design that changes to inset rectangular panels over the abutments. This bridge looks more like the design found around 1930-1932.
This bridge is a standard-plan stringer bridge. The design featured a concrete veneer on the outermost steel beams to create a uniform appearance. The bridge is on a lightly traveled road. Huron City is not really a city at least not in the present day, it is a rural location along Lake Huron. There is a museum near the bridge.
