This is a representative example of nine overpasses that were built in this area as part of an 8.4-mile elevated section called Delta Hill which carried the Malinta Cutoff portion of the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton line over the New York Central and Wabash lines near Delta. This group of bridges is noted for its unusual and ornate railings, which stand out as particularly unusual given the rural location of these bridges. Note that this particular bridge is configured as two bridges, and they are not identical as the easternmost bridge is a concrete t-beam and the western bridge is a concrete slab bridge. The t-beam bridge serves the main tracks. Lengths given are estimates.
