Fenton — Construction workers began maintenance work on the S. LeRoy Street bridge, which goes over the Shiawassee River, on Tuesday, July 27.
Dan Brisson, department of public works director, said work entails surface repairs, new asphalt approaches and sidewalk repairs at the bridge and bridge approaches. Motorists can expect intermittent lane closures.
This is the second downtown Fenton bridge to undergo these repairs. Workers did repairs on the Caroline Street bridge the week before. The Torrey Road bridge will be repaired next.
Money for these projects was earmarked in the Michigan Department of Transportation Local Agency Bridge Fund.
Local agency estimates:
• LeRoy Street bridge repairs: $87,000
• Caroline Street bridge repairs: $66,000
• Torrey Road bridge repairs: $58,000
Brisson said the city pays a portion of the project cost and the MDOT local bridge agency also pays a portion.
The Hogan Road bridge was approved for replacement for a cost of $1,256,000 for 2023.
