Today, crossing the Black River is a far simpler task than in the past. Early travelers relied on ferryboats to transport them across the river until 1856, when a wooden drawbridge was constructed.
From 1889 until 1968, an iron swing bridge connected the north and south banks of the river. The current structure, completed in 1968, was Michigan's first hydraulic bridge.
