This bridge when built would have been among the longest of Michigan's steel stringer bridges with concrete balustrade railings, which were built from approximately 1927 to 1932. It however suffers from a loss of integrity. The railings have been replaced. Although original built-up stringers remain in the interior, the outer fascia beams are replacements, which means not only is the decorative fascia beam concrete encasement missing from this bridge, the new beams hide the riveted beams and so from most perspectives the bridge looks like it has modern beams. The bridge however does retain its original piers, which were used on some of the larger stringer bridges built during this period. The design of these piers is among the most visually pleasing to be found.
