Description 

118' high at its highest point, this bridge is suspended from two 52' timber towers. It is said to be the world's longest suspension bridge with timber towers (WRIF). It is the third longest span of any bridge in Michigan, exceeded only by the Mackinac and Ambassador bridges (though the Mackinac Bridge has three spans that are longer).
