Notes
Survey number HAER MI-103-F
Significance: One of four identical single-span bridges designed to carry major north-south arterial streets over the Davison Limited Highway, built to speed crosstown traffic through Highland Park. The others were at Third Avenue, Second Avenue, and Brush Street. The hinged, reinforced concrete, rigid-framed bridge design permitted maximum underclearance without raising the grade of the street above. The steel reinforcing bars were bent on site, instead of in fabricating shops.
