M-22 Glen Lake Narrows Bridge (Old)

I wanted to set the StreetView for 2008 directly so that I wouldn't have to put that instruction as the view name, but it wouldn't let me do that.

Nevertheless, the old StreetView lets you see what the old bridge would have looked like. Kind of interesting that the (still standing) slightly newer M-204 bridge ended up on the NRHP while this one apparently didn't merit inclusion.
