Logan Street Bridge

Some info to add:

So, I ran this location through Historic Aerials, and this truss was long gone by 1955. After some digging, turns out it was apparently gone by 1928. That year comes from the Michigan Highways entry on M-99 (which this is today), which states that a northbound bridge here, built in 1928, was demolished and replaced in 1979-80. (The split for north/southbound traffic didn't happen until 1977-78.)

Also, the pair of bridges that are there today are the ones built in the late 70s; Logan Street wasn't re-named to Martin Luther King Boulevard until the early 90s.
