This is the second of two Mississippi River crossings made by CSAH-8, and the second of three nearly identical prestressed concrete girder bridges. This bridge, five miles down stream from the western crossing of the river, differs from the upstream copy in only two major details. The bridge is 84 feet longer, and as a result, there are more support pilings under the structure. This bridge replaced a 1923 truss span.

The photo above is a view of the bridge from the southeast corner of the structure. The photo below is a view looking down the length of the deck towards the west.
