History
Built 1900; Replaced 1991
Design
"The South Euclid Road Bridge is among the older known surviving examples of steel girder bridges in Michigan, and one of the largest. With an overall length of 148 feet, it ranks among the top twenty-five percent of this type in terms of length. In addition, the bridge has decorative wrought iron railings.

"This documentation was undertaken in March 1990 in accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement by the Bay County Road Commission, Federal Highway Administration, State Historic Preservation Officer, and Michigan Department of Transportation as a mitigative measure prior to the demolition and replacement of the bridge."
