ALGER COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - A bridge repair project in Alger County begins Monday.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing about $1.4 million to repair the M-28 bridge over the Au Train River in Alger County.

The project includes replacing expansion joints, bearings, and other bridge components; substructure repair; deck patching; epoxy overlay; partial painting; and pavement markings. This project includes a five-year epoxy overlay performance warranty.

The bridge is scheduled to be open to traffic by the interim completion date of Friday, Sept. 3, 2021. The final project completion date of July 2, 2022, will allow for dune grass planting and the epoxy overlay.

A map of the project area is available on Mi Drive.

One alternating lane will be open via temporary traffic signals. A 12-foot width restriction will be in place for the duration of this project.

This project will increase safety and extend the lifespan of the bridge.
