About this Bridge:
The State Street Bridge is one of only six surviving late 19th century and early 20th century multi-span through truss highway bridges left in Michigan. It is also one of two key surviving examples of bridges in Michigan produced by the Joliet Bridge and Iron Company of Joliet, Illinois, one of the leading producers of Michigan's metal truss highway bridges in the early twentieth century.

The State Street Bridge spans the Cass River in Bridgeport. It is a two-span, steel, Pratt through truss structure with pinned connections. Each span is 126 feet in length.
