Bridge Documentation

This bridge is still in use today as a snowmobile trail for the Hurley area. The tracks that this bridge once carried were removed in 1982. The orange paint colors on the bridge are the Hurley School colors. This bridge is a relatively large plate girder, of note mainly because it has a documented builder and construction date.
