This bridge is an example of a attractive standard plan steel stringer bridge design that was utilized by the Michigan State Highway Department from 1927-1932. Dating to 1927, this bridge is thus an early example of this short-lived but prolific design. More typical of the earlier examples, this bridge is noted for its riveted, built up beams. Also typical of the early examples, this bridge has longer abutment railings with solid, paneled railings, while the superstructure has the distinctive balustrade railings that all the bridges of this design used. Also typical of all the bridges of this design, the fascia beams of this bridge are encased in concrete, to give the bridge a consistent concrete appearance. The main drawbacks of this particular bridge is that its railings suffer from severe spalling and the plaques have been stolen.
