The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will begin 24-hour work at the temporary bridge site on M-30 over the Tobacco River. This work is part of a $4.3 million investment to build a prefabricated steel bridge at the former M-30 causeway bridge site in southern Gladwin County.
M-30 is closed from Cedar Drive to Twin Lake Road. Traffic will be detoured via Curtis Road, M-18, and Dale Road.
This work will result in increased noise levels, particularly Dec. 16 - 22 and Dec. 28 - 30 while crews drive steel sheeting and piles for the bridge foundation. Overnight work is being allowed to expedite the building schedule.
This work will replace the former M-30 causeway bridge washed away during May flooding and dam breaches.
