Delta County Sheriff's Office: Bridge detour traffic heavy, mostly smooth

ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - As the US-2 Escanaba River Bridge detour continues, Delta County Sheriff's Office deputies say traffic is mostly running smoothly.

Deputies assisting with traffic control are reporting heavy traffic volumes as expected.

Deputies ask that any local traffic heading north on County Road 426 toward Cornell take an alternate route to alleviate some of the traffic backups at Carol's Corner.

The detour is scheduled to end at 6 a.m. Friday. MDOT closed the US-2 bridge starting Monday night so the old railroad bridge could be removed.

The Delta County Sheriff's Office thanks drivers for their assistance and patience.
