This unassuming little bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of a very small number of metal truss bridges still in operation in Michigan. Originally built in 1888-1890, it has survived heavy damage from a 1917 tornado, which hurled it into the river, and a second extensive restoration project in 2009 to repair the ravages of nearly a century of use and harsh weather. It carries E. Delhi Road across the Huron River, connecting the small town of Delhi Mills with Huron River Drive. It's a one lane bridge, with traffic lights to assure orderly crossing when traffic is heavy (mainly during summer weekends when there are many visitors to Delhi Metropark).

Yes, I see the N's and X and other letters. If I hadn't already found an N I like better, I might have used this for tomorrow's letter shape challenge day.
