This bridge was bypassed by a new vehicular bridge (which dates to 1993), apparently because reconstruction of the adjacent Saginaw River bridge resulted in a reconfiguration of the approach grade, effectively blocking this bridge to vehicular traffic. However the bridge was restored for pedestrian use, and as a result of this the bridge is perhaps the most well-preserved example of a MSHD standard plan concrete rigid-frame bridge with original R4 style railings in the state. In addition, the bridge is historically significant as an example of a bridge built using Depression programs, and is a documented Works Progress Administration bridge. The structural and historic integrity of the bridge is excellent, with the exception of original plaques which are not present, and as such the bridge is an attractive and noteworthy part of the Ojibway Island Park.
