Brooklyn pedestrian bridge closing over I-94 near Wayne State University in Wayne County

DETROIT, Mich. ­- Bridge inspectors have determined the Brooklyn pedestrian bridge over I-94, west of M-10, needs to be closed for repairs. It was closed today, Friday, May 20, in the late afternoon.

Previous patches performed on the bridge deck, the walking surface, need replacement. The deck repairs must be done before it can be reopened. The current expected reopening is July 1.

The Brooklyn pedestrian bridge was built in 1955 and has a current rating of poor with inspections required every six months. The last inspection was April 2022. The bridge was looked at today as inspectors are double checking all the pedestrian bridges in Detroit that are rated poor. This bridge and Spruce are the only two that require closing for repairs.

Pedestrians can use Trumbull Avenue, which is west of the Brooklyn pedestrian bridge.
