This is a series of three bridges, crossing the Menominee river on two islands. Originally, these were part of a railroad crossing. After the railroad was abandoned, the right-of-way was turned into a road and the bridges were turned into single-lane road bridges. The easternmost span is the shortest, of pony-truss design; the other two are through-trusses. No builder's plaques or other information exists on the bridges.
