Grand River Bridge Closure Rescheduled

The Grand River Bridge on U.S. Route 65 in Livingston County will now close next week as part of the bridge deck replacement project.

The bridge is scheduled to close for the second of two scheduled bridge deck pours Wednesday, November 4, at 1 a.m.

The closure will continue through Saturday, November 7, at noon.

Crews had originally planned this closure for October 28 – 31.

Emergency vehicles ONLY will be permitted to cross the bridge beginning the morning of November 5.

Non-emergency traffic will be permitted to resume use of the bridge the afternoon of November 7.

The extended closure for non-emergency traffic is in order to allow the concrete on the new driving surface to completely cure.

When the bridge reopens, it will again be open to only one lane, with the 11.5-foot width restriction in place.

Contractors plan to have the bridge open to two-way traffic in early December.

As with all construction, work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
