MDOT Says Work On Branch County Bridges Will Resume
Tuesday, April 6, 2021

UNDATED – The Michigan Department of Transportation says work will resume next week on the I-69 project and three bridges in Branch County.

Nick Schirppa with the MDOT Office of Communications says crews will be completing work on 12 miles of I-69 along with the Fenn Road, State Road and Newton Road Bridges. Work started in 2020 on the $7.7 million project. It includes pavement and joint repairs, resurfacing, crack sealing and drainage improvements on I-69 between Otis Road and Girard Road. The State Road and Newton Road bridges will be painted this year.

This project will improve ride quality and provide a longer lasting pavement on I- 69. It will also extend the life of the three bridges. Work is scheduled to start on Monday, April 12 and be completed by Friday, August 27. One lane of I-69 will remain open in each direction during the project.
