Bridge Documentation

This bridge is within sight of the Michigan border a mile north. It is however unlike most bridges built in Michigan, which preferred concrete girder and steel stringer bridges over the metal truss bridge in the 20th century. This bridge has lost its original railings, and because of its lack of v-lacing and lattice, it could easily be mistaken for one of Ohio's infamous modern, non-historic welded truss bridges when viewed from nearby SR-108. The only lattice on the bridge is under the top chord, and no v-lacing is present on the bridge. As 28 feet, the bridge has a fairly wide deck, wider perhaps than one might expect from 1930, when the 20-24 foot deck was a more common width for a rural road. Some connections have bolts on them instead of rivets, most likely the result of some repair project.
