Looks like an octopus...resembles a spider...but it's the "Tridge," a 3-way bridge found in Midland.

Lots of people visit this area, not only because it's a beautiful location, but it's a place where you can relax, be creative or eat a packed lunch. There's a skateboard park, dog park, Chippewassee Park, farmer's market, golf course, disk golf, Towsley Dike Park where you can play softball, a bike trail and more, all surrounding the Tittabawassee River.

The "Tridge" is a footbridge than spans the 3-way fork of the Tittabawassee and is a nice place to spend the day by yourself, your better half or with the family

Take 127 north to Mount Pleasant. Get off exit 143 and turn left (east) on US 20. Just before you get into Midland, you'll cross over the Tittabawassee River; turn right on west Main Street; go a couple of blocks to Ashman St. and turn'll take you right to the farmer's market where you can park and enjoy the Tridge.

Have fun on your Michigan roadtrip...and hurry before summer's gone!
