A $29.4 million road project along Interstate 75 in northern Saginaw County, Mich., is set to begin today.
The construction project is expected to stretch through November 2017, according to a press release from the Michigan Department of Transportation.
Drivers on I-75 should be aware of a single-lane closure along the interstate on Monday, Aug. 15, necessary for the construction of a temporary barrier wall to be used during construction. The road shoulder will also be closed to allow crews to safely perform shoulder widening and utility work.
The project focuses on reconstruction of stretches of the interstate in the northern portion of the county, including ramps connecting I-75 to Interstate 675 near Saginaw.
It also involves reconstruction of two local bridges along the section of I-75.
A bridge along Venoy Road is currently under construction. Once work on that is complete, crews plan to begin demolition of the current Crane Road bridge over I-75. The bridge demolition work is expected to take place in mid-September.
