About this Bridge:
This is the third longest known surviving earth-filled concrete arch bridge in Michigan, with an overall length of 472 feet. The Fargo Engineering Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan, a major Michigan civil engineering firm in the early twentieth century and the corporate predecessor of Commonwealth Associates, designed this bridge for the Michigan Railway Engineering Company, which used it initially to carry its street railway lines across the Grand River.
