Martin Road Bridge
Back to Project:
Built in 1885 the Martin Road Bridge (also known as Valley Mills Bridge) is located Shiawassee County Mt. Vernon, USA. This Bridge was built by the Mt. Vernon Bridge Co.
The design is a Pratt through Truss bridge over Shiawassee River on Martin Road. This bridge is closed to vehicles.
This bridge will join several others at Auburn Heights Preserve. A lift system has been designed and is now being engineered to disassemble yet this year. Permits and purchase are in place. This bridge was at risk for collapse due to crumbling stone abutment. The county recognized the importance of acting and there is no cost to them for their part. This bridge has some very unique detailing in the connections and sizing for verticals and eyebars.
