History

Builder
- General Builders, Inc. of Kalamazoo, Michigan
Design
"One of only two surviving concrete girder camelback bridges in Michigan with sidewalks built as an integral part of the original structure. This was unusual, as most of the bridges were built in rural areas where sidewalks were not needed. It was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places on April 1, 1986.

"This documentation was undertaken in June 1989 in accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement by the Kalamazoo County Road Commission as a mitigative measure prior to the replacement of the bridge."
