The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is removing a portion of the Columbia Road Bridge over US-127 following a high-load strike that caused extensive damage to the structure. After this emergency maintenance, the bridge will have limited single-lane traffic until the structure is rebuilt.
This work will require closing the Columbia Road bridge until Monday, Oct. 19. Northbound US-127 will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday morning. Northbound US-127 traffic will be detoured via Kipp Road. Please follow posted detours. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
This closure and detour is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
