Traffic shift set for Friday at US-2 bridge over I-75 project in St Ignace

ST. IGNACE, Mich. Starting Friday, April 21, traffic will be reconfigured at the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) rebuilding project on the US-2 bridge over I-75 in St. Ignace.

On Friday, the following lane restrictions will be in place:

  • One lane of eastbound US-2 and one lane of westbound US-2 will be open on the bridge.
  • Two-way traffic will be shifted to the north side of the bridge while the south side is closed off with concrete barrier wall.
  • Southbound I-75 outside (right) lane will be closed, maintaining one lane of traffic.
  • Northbound I-75 outside (right) lane will be closed, maintaining one lane of traffic. The loop ramp to westbound US-2 (exit 344B) will also be closed. Traffic to westbound US-2 that normally takes this ramp must take exit 344A and use a temporary traffic signal to make their left turn onto US-2.
  • There will be a 11-foot width restriction on eastbound and westbound US-2, and a 12-foot width restriction on northbound and southbound I-75.

This ongoing work is part of the $4.5 million project to repair the US-2 bridge over I-75 in the city of St. Ignace. This two-year project will include expansion joint replacement, pier cap and bearing replacement, and painting. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 54 jobs.

Work started March 27 and is expected to be completed in October 2024. Additional lane shifts and restrictions will be required during future stages. For up-to-date traffic information on this project and others throughout the state, go to
