Bridge Documentation

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

This bridge is an example of a stringer design that varies from the typical Michigan stringers of the period. The bridge has a pier design that was used occasionally, but is otherwise rare. The bridge also has type R4 railings except that the concrete posts have an architectural detailing that is unlike other bridges with R4 railings. This bridge is further noted for its lack of alteration aside from the addition of modern guardrails in front of the originals. The bridge is also a relatively long example of this bridge type in Michigan.
