Traffic restrictions:

Job numbers:
Based on economic modeling, this $12.4 million investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 176 jobs.

Safety benefit:
As a result of flooding and the Edenville dam breach in May 2020, the M-30 causeway bridge near Stryker’s Marina was washed away. To restore mobility quickly, MDOT staff installed a temporary bridge that opened to traffic in March 2021. The temporary bridge will be removed and a new permanent bridge will be built in its place.
