Northbound I-75 overnight detour for bridge work in Arenac County May 4

BAY CITY, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation will detour northbound I-75 to accommodate bridge beam removal at the Lincoln Road overpass. This work is part of an overall $37 million investment to resurface 6.4 miles of US-23 from I-75 to Grove Street in the city of Standish, including repairs to 19 bridges.
