About this Bridge:
This is the oldest known surviving example of a standard Michigan State Highway Department concrete camelback bridge of 50 feet. Michigan's Department developed standard designs in the late 1910s as a way of producing inexpensive bridges for the State Trunkline System, and was a national leader in doing so. Richard Adler of Port Hope, Michigan, was the bridge contractor.
