This work includes road repairs between I-275 and Beech Daly Road, west of US-24, and bridge work at Wayne, Vining, Merriman, Middle Belt, Ecorse, and Beech Daly roads. Bridge work includes epoxy overlay, beam repair, rail patching, substructure replacement and repair, and deck patching.

This work will improve safety and provide a smoother driving surface and safer bridges for drivers, while also extending the service lives of these important transportation assets.stats
