Sturgeon Bay Bridge is known as Michigan Street Bridge

The Sturgeon Bay Bridge in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin is commonly known as Michigan Street Bridge. The historical bridge open on July 4th, 1931.

Built-in 1929 and open with a grand parade where it was officially dedicated as a Door County Veterans Memorial, according to Wikipedia. Plaques at either end still read “To honor those who gave of themselves, to their country, in times of need”

The Sturgeon Bay Bridge was a key bridge on the Wisconsin Hwy 47/52 system. From 1968 to 1978 the Sturgeon Bay Bridge was the only bridge connecting the Door County to the mainland after the abandonment of A&W Bridge Token.

The bridge was listed as a National Register of Historic Place in 2008, after a ten-year battle to save the bridge from demolition.
