Portage Lake Lift Bridge closures Wednesday evening
December 21, 2021
HOUGHTON, Mich. - Contractors for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will continue work requiring closures of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge between Houghton and Hancock Wednesday.
The contractor anticipates two closures of the bridge will be required between 9 p.m. and midnight Wednesday, Dec. 22. These closures will result in delays for vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic. The closures are planned to last for approximately 20 minutes each. Between closures, traffic will be allowed to clear.
The schedule is tentative and may be adjusted.
This work is part of the ongoing repair project to help ensure continued safe and reliable operation of the bridge.
