1981, Gilbert/Commonwealth Engineers. Confluence of the Chippewa and Tittabawassee rivers

This distinctive pedestrian bridge connects three major land areas currently divided by the confluence of the Chippewa and Tittabawassee rivers. Radiating from a single center pier, each span is three hundred feet from midstream to land. The Tridge is constructed of treated timbers. Uncongested access to a variety of activities previously inconvenient to reach is gained by the Tridge. It was the inspiration of Carl and Esther Gerstacker.
