About this Bridge:
This rivetted Parker truss bridge has two main spans of 120 feet each, and an overall length of 320 feet, making it one of the longest of this type in the state. The Michigan State Highway Department designed the structure, and Walter Toebe was the builder. This is an example of a sizeable steel pony truss bridge erected at the end of the steel truss era.
