These two small bridges are barely large enough to be considered officially bridges in the Michigan Historic Bridge Inventory, which has a minimum length requirement of 20 feet. They were built in 1920.

St. Clair County once had a gargantuan two span concrete arch bridge on Comstock Road going over Black River, which was replaced by a simple, nondescript slab. Now the only arch bridges left in the county are these two 20 foot concrete arch bridges. Originally featuring simple pole guardrails characteristic of rural bridges, these have been replaced by metal guardrails. There are (or were) a couple other structures on nearby roads of similar construction in this area, but they were even smaller and under the 20 foot threshold.

These two bridges are identical, and cross the same drain, within sight of each other. They once had metal pipe railings, which was common in a rural setting, but these have been replaced with modern Armco guardrails. Remains of the old railings are still visible on the bridge.

These are tiny bridges. Missing original railings and designed with no architectural details of any kind, they are of limited significance, however are certainly more interesting than the corrugated metal culverts or concrete box culverts that would take the place of these bridges if they were replaced. St. Clair County has had these bridges on a demolition wish list for many years.
