This may be one of the only pedestrian overpasses over Detroit expressways that retains its original railings.
This bridge was found officially historic by MDOT as part of the interchange with I-94 to the south. However as it is not specifically part of the interchange, it is given its own listing here on HistoricBridges.org. Also, this may be the sole remaining structure of the interchange once MDOT gets done with total demolition and replacement of the actual interchange. As the demolition project is described as an I-94 project, and the Lodge was rehabilitated extensively some years ago (including the rehabilitation of this bridge) it is hoped this bridge will survive the interchange replacement.
This overpass uses an unusual railing that is found on some bridges in Detroit (mostly railroad overpasses). The current working theory is that this is a Wayne County Road Commission railing design. The Michigan State Highway Department was using the R4 railing at the time, and the Lodge was unique among state highways in that the road commission did much of the design work, since State Highway Department engineers were busy designing other expressways at the time.
MDOT lists this as the "Holden Avenue Walkover" and the sign on this bridge says Avenue, but Holden shows as Holden Street on Google Maps. Walkover appears to be the term MDOT gave the pedestrian overpasses that dot Detroit's expressways.
Roadway width is an estimate.
