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.

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.
