With a construction date of 1910 listed, this bridge is among the oldest surviving concrete arch bridges in Michigan. 1910 was still somewhat in the earlier years of reinforced concrete bridge construction. A historical postcard that displays what is believed to be this bridge proclaims the bridge the "Longest Span Cement Bridge in the State." The validity of this claim is unknown, however in this earlier period of concrete bridge construction, it may have held that title when completed. What is certain, however, is that if it did truly hold that claim, it lost the rights to the claim very quickly as larger spans were built in the next couple years elsewhere. The bridge is unusual because it is constructed with a grade (slope) which is unusual with concrete arch bridges. The bridge has had its original railings replaced, but otherwise appears to retain integrity of materials and design.
