Summary

Significance: This is an excellent example of a mid-sized bridge built by a small rural township to serve the transportation needs of its farmers, enabling them to move their products to market. This is one of more than a dozen reinforced concrete bridges built in Macomb County, Michigan, by the Illinois Bridge Company of Chicago. This firm erected scores of concrete bridges in Michigan in the early twentieth century.
Survey number: HAER MI-83
