M-95 bridge repair work to begin

REPUBLIC — The Michigan Department of Transportation is repairing two bridges on M-95 in Marquette County, with traffic restrictions to begin Monday.

The roughly $880,000 project will involve the bridges over Trout Falls Creek and the Michigamme River.

Work began in June but will now begin impacting traffic. A concrete barrier and a temporary traffic signal will be in place starting Monday at the Michigamme River bridge for deck work. One alternating lane of traffic will be open with the signal, with an 11-foot width restriction to be in effect during this stage of the project.

The estimated completion date is Sept. 14.
