Well, here's what the crossing, so to speak, looks like now. No doubt the original bridge(s) were demolished and replaced with - most likely, a concrete culvert.

The photo right at creek-level is as close as I could get on foot; not recommended unless you're sure of your footing.

I'm guessing that this is what whomever posted this had in mind:

Note the pedestrian truss bridge next to it. The picture right before that has more of a street-level view - compare that picture to how the area looks now on Google StreetView, and my bet would be that both bridges were removed when they filled the area in.

10-05-14 We drove the length of N. Main St. We saw no bridges at all. Road is next to the Pere Marquette Rails-To-Trails. If the bridge is still there, it might be visible from the trail.
