As part of the Rebuilding Michigan project on I-496, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will add a waterproof sealant and epoxy overlay to the Canal Road bridge over I-496.
Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improve the condition of the state's infrastructure.
The Canal Road bridge over I-496 will be closed and detoured for the duration of this work. Please follow posted detours. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-496, which is a significant local and national trade corridor. This preventive maintenance work on the bridge will extend the life of the structure and preserve taxpayer investment.
