CRYSTAL FALLS, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) plans to invest about $2.9 million to repair three bridges in Iron and Ontonagon counties. Work includes a deep overlay; epoxy overlay; joint replacement; deck, railing, and substructure patching; curb and gutter repairs; guardrail; and approach work on US-45 over the east branch of the Ontonagon River, M-64 over the Mineral River, and M-69 over the Paint River. This project includes a five-year performance warranty for the epoxy bridge deck overlay.
M-69, M-64, US-45

Estimated end date:
October 2023 (For all three bridges)
During the project traffic will be maintained with one lane of alternating traffic utilizing temporary traffic signals. Detours will be necessary during some phases of the projects.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 35 jobs.
This work will extend the lifespan of the bridges and result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety for motorists.
