Roads get spotlight, but 447 Michigan bridges in serious condition or worse

from Bridge MI

A year ago, Genesee County bridge inspectors discovered holes in the steel beams holding up a bridge over the Swartz Creek. The two-lane bridge is now being held together by temporary steel supports until it can be replaced in 2020 — a roughly $2 million project that, because of its urgency, will be done a year earlier than planned. The Swartz Creek span has plenty of company in Genesee County — where roughly 20 percent of the county's 120 bridges are in serious or critical condition — and across the state. "The urgency to fix is great," said Eric Johnston, the county road commission's engineering director. The money to fix them? Not so great. more
