In the 1920s and 1930s, the Michigan State Highway Department employed concrete slab and concrete t-beam bridges for the shortest of bridges. Many of these bridges had a distinctive railing design not found on any other bridge type or size in Michigan. This bridge is an example of just such a bridge. Its distinctive railings do suffer from some spalling, but otherwise the bridge is unaltered. This bridge is about as long of a bridge as this railing design was ever used on. The unusually large width of this bridge is testimony to the fact that this road was once US-2, which is today realigned immediately to the south.
