U.S.2 BREVORT RIVER BRIDGE REPLACEMENT DETOUR STARTS SEPTEMBER 3RD

The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $2.3 million to replace the U.S.2 bridge over the Brevort River in Moran Township, Mackinac County.  The narrow bridge, originally constructed in 1935, is considered functionally obsolete and is no longer a viable candidate for preventive maintenance; it needs to be replaced.  The current structure is 55 feet long and 38 feet wide with shoulders.  The new bridge will be 110 feet long and a little more than 46 feet wide with 10-foot shoulders.

The work will require closoing U.S.2 at the bridge with a posted detour.  Westbound traffic will be detoured onto I-75 in St.Ignace to M-123 to Worth Road and back onto U.S.2.  The detour will be reversed for eastbound traffic.  The detour adds approximately 3 miles to the route for through-traffic.  Moran Township and St.Ignace businesses along U.S.2 will still be open and accessible.

The estimated completion date is:  Wednesday, November 13th.  The new structure will be wider, safer and more efficient for the motoring public and pedestrians.
