"This is an excellent example of a moderate sized bridge built by a small rural township to serve the transportation needs of its farmers, enabling them to move their products to market. This is one of more than a dozen reinforced concrete bridges built in Macomb County, Michigan, by the Illinois Bridge Company of Chicago. This firm erected scores of concrete bridges in Michigan in the early twentieth century.
"This documentation is a result of a Memorandum of Agreement between the Macomb County Road Commission, the State Historic Preservation Office, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation as a mitigative measure prior to the demolition of the bridge. It was completed in 1995 by Dr. Charles K. Hyde, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI 48202."
