Ah, interesting! So does this mean that the bridge on this site replaced the one from 1905? Also I just noticed it said that the one here was replaced in 1929. Is there any info out there about it's replacement, and also when the last bridge at this location was removed?

The location is definitely the same, but: This is listed as being built in 1914, while the one at that link is captioned with a date of 1905.

I wonder if this bridge found here is the same one as the one on this page: http://www.michiganrailroads.com/stations-locations/137-sagi...
