This weekend, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close M-39 and its service drives to safely demolish the Glendale Street and Tournier Street pedestrian bridges between I-96 and M-5 (Grand River Avenue). They are no longer used and have been closed for safety reasons. Their removal is part of a larger project to remove and replace five pedestrian bridges in Detroit.
