I'll definitely have to put this one on my hope-to-see list, Nathan! Looks like it would be an interesting little span with remarkably intact lattice railings (at least as of 2009 - hope they're still that way!). Good thing that streetview sometimes surprises us and goes down little dirt roads!

Paul,

This is sort of in your area. Have not visited, but will try.

It is slated for demolition and replacement under the Local Agency Bridge Bundling Program, which is resulting in a mass slaughter of historic bridges in Michigan!
