ALGOMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - An unusual Camelback-style bridge in Kent County is getting a historical marker from the state.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1Cnsmo4 ) the marker will be unveiled in a Friday ceremony celebrating the 90-year-old Pine Island Drive Bridge over the Rogue River in Algoma Township.

Kent County Road Commission engineer Tom Byle says the 100-foot long, 20-foot wide bridge is one of the only remaining concrete rainbow arch bridge in the country, if not the last one. The commission recently completed a restoration project on the bridge built in 1924.

The Michigan Historical Commission formally recognized the bridge in 2012.
