Tree clearing ahead of Blue Water Bridge plaza improvements starts Jan. 29
January 25, 2024
PORT HURON, Mich. - Crews will begin removing trees across nearly half an acre adjacent to the existing Blue Water Bridge (BWB) plaza, near Pine Grove Avenue, Harker Street, Scott Avenue, and westbound I-94 from Garfield to the Black River. This work is being completed ahead of Component One of the plaza improvements, which includes relocating the eastbound I-94 exit ramp at Pine Grove Avenue, building sound walls along portions of the project limits, and reconfiguring Pine Grove Avenue and 10th Avenue.
A total of 110 trees will be flagged for removal, with an effort to leave mature and developed trees north of Scott Avenue in place to support a future nonmotorized path.
Pine Grove Avenue
Monday, Jan. 29, 2024
Estimated end date:
Monday, April 1, 2024
One intermittent lane and shoulder closure are expected on the eastbound I-94 exit ramp to Pine Grove Avenue, and along westbound I-94 from Garfield Road to the Black River.
Based on economic modeling, the total investment of Component One construction is expected to directly and indirectly support 525 jobs.
This work will allow crews to begin work on Component One in the spring and avoid impacting the nesting season for bats, beginning in early April.
