Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is one of three similar overpasses on this railroad line, one in Lenawee County and two in Monroe County. The bridges are structurally configured as two deck plate girder bridges sitting tightly next to each other and sharing the same abutment. The abutment design is of interest because it has an open design with an archway underneath which functions as an opening for a sidewalk.

Of the three bridges, this one is the most deteriorated. However it retains original railings unlike the other two. These railings are quite interesting as they are of a unique design and somewhat decorative in appearance.
