Notes
Survey number HAER MI-46
Building/structure dates: 1936 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1969 initial construction
Significance: This is a good example of a mid-sized viaduct structure designed to bridge an area with unstable subsoil conditions. The use of reinforced-concrete piers and abutments in combination with a steel girder superstructure is an unusual design. The concrete piers extend beyond the main girders, so that much of the deck is cantilevered.
