Some old pictures I found
It would be really nice if they did like Barry county did with McKeown Road
There have been some discussions I believe by the township of restoring this bridge in place. On my own, separate of these discussions, I visited the bridge and did a thorough visual examination of the bridge and based on that made some suggestions for what the scope of work for a project might include. My conclusions do not take into account any issues that an engineering analysis might reveal, but simply report on areas of deterioration that were noted and how those areas might be repaired. My report and findings are included on the HistoricBridges.org page for this bridge http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowse...
I consider this to be one of Michigan's more important bridges because it is the only highway truss built by in-state fabricator Detroit Bridge and Iron Works. Most bridges by the company are railroad bridges.
