Bridge Documentation

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

In Michigan's context, this bridge is a fairly old example of a concrete arch bridge, and is also very wide for its construction date, especially when the sidewalk width is added to the roadway width. Sadly this relatively simple arch bridge lost most of its aesthetic qualities when its original railings were replaced with New Jersey barriers. Further loss of historic integrity is caused by the use of shotcrete which covered the original arch material.
