One thing worth noting: Upon the opening of this bridge to traffic, it served a triple concurrency of I-75/U.S. 23/U.S. 10. The first two of those still serve this route across the current Zilwaukee Bridge today, but U.S. 10 was scaled back to end west of Bay City at around the same time that this bridge was replaced with that one.
I believe it was demolished in 1989. Still looking for information...
"...and Bay City officials want to buy it, dismantle it and move it 7 1/2 miles north to replace bridge in city that collapsed in the 1950s. Moving the old bridge will save more than $1 million, they figure."
Ha! Now that is amazing. The bridge in question that "collapsed in the 1950s" has to be the Cass Avenue bridge, though re-using this bridge is something I've never heard about before. Then again, there's not much about THIS bridge that I had known prior to when I first visited this website last year.
Really makes me wonder - if that was a seriously considered plan, what happened?
