The work includes replacing expansion joints and drains, repairing superstructure and substructure, and pier work on the M-95 bridges over Trout Falls Creek and the Michigamme River. Work began in June but will now begin impacting traffic. Concrete barrier and a temporary traffic signal will be in place beginning Monday at the Michigamme River bridge for deck work.
