Bridge Documentation

As a plate girder bridge that carries a highway, this bridge stands out at unusual in Michigan. Most plate girder bridges in Michigan carry a railroad line. The bridge does cross a railroad line however and appears to be a bridge designed and built by the railroad. The single plate girder span forms a main span over the railroad line, while wooden stringer spans provide an approach. Bents and abutments are all of wood as well, as is the deck and deck stringers and even the floorbeams for the girder span. The use of wooden floorbeams for the metal plate girder span is somewhat unusual. It is also worth noting that the layout of the floorbeams and deck on the girder span is not completely original. Unused attachments for lateral bracing rods on the plate girders indicate that these have been removed. The rods would not fit today with the way the flooring system is configured, so something appears to have been changed in the deck layout from the original design.

As of 2012, this bridge was reportedly closed to vehicular traffic. However as of 2014, the bridge is open to traffic.
