PROJECT DETAILS:
Last fall, the Michigan Department of Transportation began this $1.8 million project to perform bridge repairs on US-24 (Telegraph Road) over the Tarabusi Creek between I-96 and 5 Mile Road/Fenkell Avenue. Work has included removing and replacing support beams, patching the driving surface, and other repairs. 

SAFETY BENEFIT:
This work will extend the life of the bridge, improve the safety of the roadway and ensure long-term use.

ESSENTIAL WORK:
This road construction project is an essential function. Transportation workers in the field follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines to limit their risk of getting sick.
