New Bridge Being Built in Potterville
Portions of M-100 between Potterville and Grand Ledge will be reduced to one lane of traffic starting today. Temporary traffic signals will be activated and in place through this fall while the Michigan Department of Transportation replaces the culvert.
The work is part of an $8.6 million construction project on M-100 that includes the replacement of a bridge just north of Main street in Potterville.
Work Began in April. A new bridge is being built just west of the existing 75 year old bridge. It will be used temporarily for traffic while the old bridge is torn down, and then be moved sideways and secured in place this fall.
The current bridge runs over a Canadian National railroad track. The new bridge, expected to be in place by November, will be slightly wider with a 10 foot pedestrian path.
