East Delhi Bridge
The Delhi Bridge pictured above is actually not the original bridge that once occupied this spot. The original bridge was destroyed by a tornado in 1918. The bridge was built by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio, a major and prolific bridge company with unique designs that are easily spotted.
This bridge is located in a very picturesque setting, with a metro park close by, which offers awesome views of the bridge. Ruins of the Delhi Mills are still visible in the area, with some pretty rapids in the river in that area now also. The area is wooded, and the bridge seems to fit right in with its rural turn of the 20th century appearance. The demolition of this bridge and replacement with a modern slab of concrete would have had a severely detrimental effect on the beauty of the area.

Summer and Fall on the U of M campus wouldn’t quite be the same without students and businessmen/women sitting with laptops in the park, reading, or sitting on a blanket with pets and friends. The Diag is friendly to all walks of life and careers, and for foot traffic or bicycles. Even on hot summer days you can always find the right amount of shade to open that book or sit and listen to a local musician strum their guitar by a tree.
