This bridge appears to be a metal stringer bridge with a concrete arch facade. The bridge has been altered and lost aesthetic quality with the addition of big ugly railings for a non-motorized pathway that crosses the bridge, however the original, simple concrete barriers that are similar to other historic bridges on Grosse Ile remain on the bridge. The facade quality of the arch is clearly visible, since no additional arch structure or arched beams are present under the bridge aside from the outermost arch beam. There is the possibility that the bridge was originally a ribbed arch bridge and that the inner ribs were replaced with the steel stringers seen today.
