The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is hosting a drop-in open house to discuss the upcoming work on the M-55 Cooley Bridge over the Pine River. This project work will be done in two phases.

The first phase of the project that will begin this fall, is scheduled for September 4 thru November 10 and includes structural steel repair and partial painting. Highway traffic will be detoured on local roads during the duration of this phase.

The second phase of this project will be next year in 2019 starting in the spring and continuing into the summer.  This work consists of a bridge deck thin overlay replacement, substructure repair, structural steel enhancements, cleaning and coating the structural steel, concrete sealant, and bridge approach work. Highway traffic will again be detoured on local roads during the duration of this phase.

The open house will have the bridge project plans displayed for review with the opportunity for residents, commuters, organizations, agencies, and business owners to ask questions of MDOT staff.
