Thanks to a listener reminding us to make sure everyone is aware of this positive road construction update (official news release from MDOT)…..

 

August 3, 2020 — The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has awarded an emergency contract to begin repairs to M-30 over the Tittabawassee River in Edenville. The bridge sustained extensive damage to the piers and bridge approach during flooding in May.

In late June, an emergency contract was issued to begin debris removal at the site. Following debris removal, crews were able to inspect the existing structure and determine what repairs were necessary and feasible to reopen the bridge to traffic. Crews will retrofit the existing piers with additional supports and rebuild the road and bridge approach.

These repairs will allow the bridge to reopen to traffic, restoring mobility to much of northern Midland County while plans to build a new bridge are underway. “This bridge was originally built in 1947, making a new structure in the near future a necessity,” said Region Bridge Engineer, Paul Schiefer. “By making these repairs now, we can restore mobility in a matter of months, while we work on a new bridge design and securing funding for a permanent bridge in the future.”

Midland-based Fisher Contracting was awarded the emergency contract for $1.2 million and will begin work Monday, Aug. 3. M-30 over the Tittabawassee River is expected to reopen to traffic by mid-September.
