M89 Bridge Closure
The M-89 bridge over the mill race is showing signs of distress. After evaluation Tuesday by MDOT bridge engineers, the decision has been made to close the bridge and rebuild the new structure.
We certainly understand this is an inconvenience, but public safety is of utmost importance as we replace this bridge.
The bridge will be closed starting Monday, May 21, and will remain closed until reconstruction is complete. The eastbound M-89 detour will be south on Church Street to west on Bridge Street.
MDOT is working with the city, contractors and FHWA to make this as smooth transition as possible. We thank you for your patience and cooperation.
