Blue Water Bridge To Enter Next Phase of Construction

March 19, 2024
The eastbound span will now undergo construction

Construction to Michigan's Blue Water Bridge is set to resume in May and will require closing one side of the structure for a few months, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).

MDOT said maintenance on the eastbound span of the bridge will run between May 29 and October. Last year, crews conducted work on the westbound side of the bridge.

During construction, the eastbound span of the bridge, and both directions of traffic will use the westbound span of the bridge.

To reduce impacts on traffic, one outgoing lane will be reserved for eastbound traffic heading into Canada and then will become two lanes after the center span. One outgoing lane will be reserved for traffic heading into the U.S. and then will become two lanes after the center span.

During construction, wide loads will be restricted to less than 10 feet, and dedicated lanes for commuter pass holders and buses cannot be accommodated.
