Woodland Road Bridge

Map 

Description 

From the MDOT site in "sources" section:

"The structure is comprised of a single plate girder span, flanked on each end by a steel stringer approach span. These are supported by concrete full-height abutments and concrete-filled steel cylinder piers. The main span features two 60-foot through girders, joined by four underslung I-beam stringers."

One of only two remaining examples of this design.
