Notes
Survey number HAER MI-72
Significance: The Burroughs Street Bridge is one of few remaining multi-span pony truss bridges in Michigan and represents an early example of riveted Warren truss construction. The Groton Bridge Company of New York, an important bridge firm with a large volume of business and extensive territory, designed and built the bridge. Only two other Michigan examples of this firm's work are known to survive. The bridge has been determined to be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places by the Michigan Bureau of History.
