This bridge is a plate girder overpass that carries a railroad line over a depressed section of divided highway. The structure is noted for its heavy skew. The bridge has an unusual pier design. The odd design may be because of the skew, but part of the pier and the abutment looks like it may have been designed to accommodate a widening or expansion of the bridge in the future. The bridge retains excellent historic integrity. There are also unaltered retaining walls for the divided highway that feature Michigan's beautiful type R4 railings. The integrity and aesthetics of this contribute to the quality of the setting.
