Western Wayne County is noted for its large number of old concrete bridges, including rigid-frames, t-beams, and arch bridges. These bridges were built along the three branches of River Rouge, many of them designed to serve the parkways which were built along the rivers. The vast majority of these bridges have been altered by the replacement of the original decorative balustrade railings with mundane modern barriers. This bridge is distinguished as one of the few bridges that survives with its original balustrade railings. The railings on this bridge are indeed very decorative and beautiful. The surface of the urn shaped balusters which compose the balustrade have a yellow stone surface that gives them texture and a different color. The light standards on the bridge are similarly textured. Also, at the ends of the bridge, the railings curve our slightly in a flare, adding to the aesthetic qualities of the bridge.
