Northbound I-75 overnight closure for bridge beam setting at Lincoln Road in Arenac County Sept. 13

BAY CITY, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation will detour northbound I-75 to accommodate bridge beam setting at the Lincoln Road overpass in Arenac County. 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.  

Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.
