This bridge is one of a number of curved t-beam overpasses along US-10 that retain original type R4 railings, although modern Armco guardrail has been added to the bridge as well. However, this bridge stands out as particularly special for several reasons. First it is one of the only surviving curved t-beams that carries a limited access highway and still has original railings instead of replacement New Jersey barriers. The bridge is also slightly curved with an accompanying superelevation, features that are extremely rare in Michigan's curved t-beams. Because it crosses over a simple two lane highway, the bridge is quite short compared to most of Michigan's curved t-beam overpasses. There are some similar overpasses in the immediate vicinity of this bridge but they have had their original railings replaced.
