About this Bridge:
This is the oldest known surviving example of a standard Michigan State Highway Department concrete camelback bridge of 70 feet. Michigan's Highway 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. L.A. Davison & Company was the contractor for this bridge.
