The Lafayette Avenue Bridge, listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Bay City Bascule Bridge, is a set of two small bridges located in Bay City, Michigan. It carries M-13 and M-84 over the Saginaw River. It is maintained by the Michigan Department of Transportation, and is the oldest of four drawbridges in Bay City. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 30, 1999.
Heading east, the first bridge carries M-13/M-84 from the western shore of the river to Middle Ground Island. The second bridge, a small drawbridge carries the road from the island to the eastern shore of the river. M-13/M-84 is known as Salzburg Avenue on the west side of the river, and Lafayette Avenue on the east, which is where the bridge's name comes from.
