Overview
Lost Camelback concrete arch bridge over Canadian National Railroad on Genesee Road near Lapeer
Location
Lapeer, Lapeer County, Michigan
Status
Replaced by new bridge
History
Built 1928; Replaced 2003
Design
"With a center span of 20.42m (67') and two end spans 12.19m (40') for total length of 44.81m (147'), this is the sixth longest known surviving example of a concrete camelback bridge in the state.

This bridge replacement became more critical after the 1991 bridge inspection indicated the 50 ton load limit. To mitigate the adverse effect, the State Historic Preservation Office stipulated codumentation of the historic bridge. This documentation was undertaken to fulfill the first stipulation of the Memorandum of Agreement.
