Bridge Repairs Coming Next Week
The repairs continue in our state as the Michigan Department of Transportation will be out and about making the much needed fixes to our highway and byways in the coming days. In fact, here is some important information that you need to be aware of if you are traveling on parts of I-96 next week.
According to a press release from MDOT:
Tuesday, April 21, 2020
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
Early July 2020
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest about $8 million to perform critical preventive maintenance and repair work on seven bridges over I-96 and two I-96 bridges over M-52 in Ingham County.
Work will continue with the Elm Road bridge April 21 through July. Other bridge projects include Meridian Road, Williamston Road, Zimmer Road, Wallace Road, and the two I-96 bridges over M-52. As the project progresses, additional information on the other locations will be announced.
Elm Road will be closed over I-96 and detoured via Grand River Avenue, Stockbridge Road, and Holt Road. I-96 traffic will be maintained with a traffic shift under Elm Road. Expect periodic nighttime lane closures throughout the project duration. An alternate route is advised.
Performing regular maintenance on bridges helps improve and extend the service life of these structures. Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
