Amtrak has been contracted by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to perform preventive maintenance work on the Dexter viaduct railroad bridge over Island Lake Road. The contractor will install concrete netting along the top edge of the viaduct bridge next to the railroad tracks.
Island Lake Road will be closed between Eastridge Drive and Dexter-Chelsea Road on Dec. 13, 16, and 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Motorists are recommended to follow the posted detours.
Installing the netting will prevent materials from falling from the top of the railroad viaduct bridge onto the roadway. Closing the road ensures safety to both workers and motorists.
