This bridge is one of a few unusual bridges along this stretch of I-75 noted for their use of built-up riveted steel bents for a substructure. This bridge originally had a triple tube railing which has been replaced with New Jersey barrier. Historical video of a grand opening of I-75 was recorded at this bridge and can be seen on YouTube.
One of the contractors listed on this bridge is named the Alpine Construction Company. It is assumed this was a new name for the company that built other bridges in the U.P. in earlier decades, the Alpine Excavating Company of St. Ignace, Michigan.
The photos for this bridge were taken when I-75 was closed for construction to the south of this bridge. This is not a very busy section of Interstate so a closure does not create a huge problem.
