Clinton River Road bridge over M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) closing for three months for bridge work in Macomb County

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. - Bridge improvements are set to begin 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 28, on the Clinton River Road bridge over M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) in Macomb County, requiring the bridge to be closed for three months during full deck replacement, partial painting, and substructure repairs. Only local traffic will be permitted on Clinton River Road between 19 Mile Road and Schoenherr Road. Access will be maintained to Henry Ford II High School.

The following detours will be in place during the closure:

  • Eastbound Clinton River Road: Eastbound 19 Mile Road, then southbound Schoenherr Road back to Clinton River Road.
  • Westbound Clinton River Road: Northbound Schoenherr Road, then westbound 19 Mile Road back to Clinton River Road.

This work is part of a $16 million project on M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) between 18 Mile Road and M-59 (Hall Road) to resurface the roadway, perform concrete and guardrail repairs, repair 10 bridges, and resurfacing the 23 Mile ramps to M-53. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly supports about 197 jobs.
