Monroe Street Bridge (Older)
Posted August 4, 2021, by Tim Davis (chaplaintimdavis [at] gmail [dot] com)

Hello, Iím seeking information about some paver bricks which were from a bridge demolition in Monroe about 30(?)years ago. Iím repurposing the bricks as pavers beside my driveway in Ypsilanti. The previous owner of the bricks mentioned where they had come from and I love to have a story for the items I repurpose.

Please share any information you may have and suggestions of where I can seek more information.

Thanks

Tim
