Notes
Survey number HAER MI-39
Significance: The Sheridan Road Bridge is significant as the last remaining skewed, Pratt, through-truss bridge in Michigan. The structure is places on its abutments at an approximate 45 degree angle because the Flint River and Sheridan Road are nearly parallel at this location. It was also important as part of a statewide road network, especially providing Saginaw County with historic access to the state capital, Lansing, and in serving local farm to market access.
