This bridge is a short steel stringer bridge. It is noteworthy for its unusual railings which are a solid parapet design with inset rectangles forming the architectural detailing. These railings do not appear to follow any of the popular standard railing designs Michigan used during various times in the first half of the 20th Century. The bridge appears to be unaltered and in excellent condition. The inside railing faces have been painted in an attractive two color scheme.
This bridge reportedly replaced a truss bridge which was relocated to become the Balyeat Field Bridge.
There was also a truss bridge located on Mill Street at one time, as the below historical photo from ca. 1900 shows.
