I-75 resurfacing and bridge improvements in Bay County start April 12
Monday, April 12, 2021
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $29 million to resurface nearly 5 miles of I-75 from Beaver Road to Cottage Grove Road in Bay County. Work includes significant bridge improvements on the Parish Road bridge over I-75 and the I-75 bridge over Beaver Road, including deck replacements and steel repairs.
Traffic will be maintained with single-lane closures and a moveable barrier wall. To maintain an additional lane of traffic on I-75 in the peak direction of travel from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, crews will move the barrier wall on Saturdays between 2 and 6 p.m. and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
I-75 will need to be closed during overnight hours to accommodate the Parish Road bridge deck removal. Single-lane closures on Beaver Road should also be expected to accommodate bridge repairs throughout the project. Both overpasses will be closed to traffic during deck replacements.
This work will improve the I-75 driving surface and complete critical bridge repairs, extending the life of the I-75 roadway, as well as the I-75 bridge over Beaver Road and the Parish Road bridge over I-75.
