Maple Street Bridge

Oblique View Of Bridge, Looking Northeast

There really isn't anything out of the ordinary about this bridge except that it appears to be completely original and unmodified (except for deck resurfacing) from its construction in 1940. In that light, it is a well-preserved example of typical design and construction of Wisconsin bridges from the late 1930s through the mid 1950s.

For example, the original steel railings are in place. Most railings of this type have long since been replaced.
