M-140 bridge in Watervliet reopens today, ahead of schedule

KALAMAZOO, Mich. ­- The Michigan Department of Transportation will be wrapping up its $800,000 investment to repair the M-140 bridge over the Paw Paw Lake Outlet near Watervliet in Berrien County almost two months ahead of schedule.

The bridge will be reopened to traffic this afternoon. It originally was scheduled for completion by Oct. 30.

The project included rebuilding the bridge deck and repairing the abutments and piers. There still is some work to complete off the roadway, such as turf establishment and silt fence removal, but nothing that will require lane or bridge closures.
