Group Saves Historic Bridge

Ann Arbor News
In June 2007, the East Delhi bridge was declared a local historic district, "a designation that would afford the bridge more protection than just a National Register nomination," according to information provided by Townsend.

"Typically, local bridge program funds cannot be used for rehabilitation projects but the East Delhi Road Bridge project is the first in the state of Michigan to utilize these funds for the rehabilitation of a one-lane bridge," Townsend says.

The bridge is also the first local historic district composed of municipal property, he says.

"The fact that the Delhi bridge will be rehabilitated and not replaced in the summer of 2008 is due in no small part to these three civil servants being willing to work outside the box of their normal job descriptions and routines," says the nomination application for the three recipients.
