Main Street-Muskegon River Bridge (Replacement)
Posted September 1, 2019, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

They didn't start constructing prestressed concrete bridges until near the end of the 1950s, did they?

Because with that in mind, I'm thinking this is one of those spans where the "repair" is really a replacement.
