EPOUFETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Construction work on the US-2 Cut River Bridge will resume Wednesday, the the Michigan Department of Transportation announced.
Cleaning and painting will restart on the Heath M. Robinson Memorial Cut River Bridge in Mackinac County. Work was suspended for the season in late December. MDOT is spending $4.8 million to repaint and repair the bridge. The work also involved structural steel repairs and expansion joint repairs.
One lane of alternating traffic will be maintained with temporary signals and flag control as necessary. The roadside park at the bridge is closed and will remain closed until the painting is completed. Pedestrian traffic underneath the bridge will continue to be prohibited for safety reasons.
MDOT says the estimated completion date is Wednesday, June 12, 2019, and this project will help preserve the overall condition of the structure.
