Title: Okemos Rd. Camelback Bridge in Okemos, Mich. closure/demolition to begin
Post by: hockeyjohn on February 01, 2022, 10:24:01 AM
The replacement of the 1924 camelback bridge on NB Okemos Rd. will soon begin.   It's a real shame to see another one of these historic structures go.

Some background about the bridge from MDOT.

That sucks, I used to drive over that bridge a ton when I sent to High School in Dewitt.

I used to drive over that bridge to go to the Travelers Club and Tuba Museum, which I understand is now closed.

The camelback bridge on Cleveland Street (old US-16, even older M-16) near Nunica MI is still there.
