Created/Published
Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER MI-45-B
Building/structure dates: 1932 initial construction
Significance: The timber trestle is an excellent example of mid-twentieth timber construction. This type of construction was common before the use of steel. The original plans called for the entire approach to the dock to be constructed of timber. However the inexpensive price of steel during the Great Depression caused a change in plans and this portion of the approach is all that remains of the earlier type of approach construction.
