This bridge is a traditional example of a type of bridge
that Michigan occasionally built over both rivers and railroads, which was a
standard multi-span steel stringer, but which stood on steel bent supports
instead of concrete piers. This bridge features this design in its most
typical format, and is a good representative example of a mid-20th Century
steel stringer in Michigan using steel bents instead of the usual concrete
piers. Built in 1964, it is also one of the last bridges known to have been built with Michigan's attractive Type R4 standard railing.
Since this bridge was documented in 2009, this bridge's weight limit has been lowered.
