All lanes of Escanaba River Bridge to reopen Friday
After more than two years of construction work, MDOT says all lanes on the Escanaba River Bridge will be open Friday before 8:00 p.m.
MDOT spent $20.5 million to replace both the US-2 bridge over the Escanaba River and the Escanaba and Lake Superior (E&LS) Railroad bridge over US-2. Remaining work, including bridge deck warning system testing and slope restoration, is expected to be completed by July 12.
MDOT says the traffic signal at the US-2/US-41/M-35 intersection with Delta County Road 426 will be in full operation with green, amber and red phases.
MDOT says should continue to use caution while traffic in the area returns to normal.
