This bridge is one of three similar overpasses on this railroad line, one in Lenawee County and two in Monroe County. The bridges are structurally configured as two deck plate girder bridges sitting tightly next to each other and sharing the same abutment. The abutment design is of interest because it has an open design with an archway underneath which functions as an opening for a sidewalk.
This bridge retains an original plaque which follows the Michigan State Highway Department design for plaques in the 1920s. The original railings on the bridge appear to have been replaced.
