Island Lake Road nightly closures planned for Dexter viaduct railroad bridge work
Island Lake Road
Wednesday, March 11, 2020
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
Thursday, March 19, 2020
Amtrak has been contracted by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to perform permanent repairs to the Dexter viaduct railroad bridge over Island Lake Road. The contractor will install a concrete ballast retainer over the roadway.
Island Lake Road will be closed nightly (except weekends) between Eastridge Drive and Dexter-Chelsea Road during construction. Motorists are recommended to follow the posted detours.
Installing the ballast retainer 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.
