Bridge Documentation

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

The City of Lansing once had a number of concrete arch bridges including at least two that were eligible or listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and the city failed to preserve any of them. As a result, only this bridge remains in the city, and indeed all of Ingham County, as an example of this important structure type. Previously found ineligible for the National Register of Historic Places, the time has come to reconsider this bridge and recognize it as a locally significant example of its type. The bridge was built in 1924, and was altered at an unknown date, perhaps in the 1950s, with the replacement of its railings with Michigan's Type R4 railings. Although not original, the historical R4 railing type gives the bridge a beautiful appearance and compliments the arch design very nicely. The bridge remains in decent condition, and as such the City of Lansing has one last chance to make tjhe right choice and preserve a historic concrete arch bridge. The value of preserving this bridge is clear, since a non-motorized walkway passes under the bridge on the northern side, and a park is also nearby, and as such the structure contributes to the beauty and features of these public facilities.
