Michigamme River bridge work

MARQUETTE — M-95 Michigamme River bridge deck work began Monday.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing about $880,000 to repair two bridges on M-95 in Marquette County. The work includes replacing expansion joints and drains, repairing superstructure and substructure, and pier work on the M-95 bridges over Trout Falls Creek and the Michigamme River. Work began in June but will now begin impacting traffic. Concrete barrier and a temporary traffic signal will be in place beginning today at the Michigamme River bridge for deck work.

One alternating lane of traffic will be open with the temporary signal. An 11-foot width restriction will be in effect during this stage of the project.

The estimated completion date is Sept. 14.
