Detour changed for upcoming M-29 closure in St. Clair County

SAGINAW, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close M-29 from Bree Road to Clinton Avenue to complete concrete patches and replace the CSX Railroad crossing in the city of St. Clair. The detour routes have been adjusted to accommodate other work on local roads.

This work is part of an overall $965,000 investment to improve 1.6 miles of M-29, including sidewalk ramp improvements compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
