Custer Road Bridge over Pere Marquette River

Custer Road Bridge construction begins Monday; closure in a few weeks.

CUSTER TOWNSHIP — Custer Road Bridge over the Pere Marquette River, south of the Village of Custer, will be under construction starting Monday, March 12.  

Closure of the bridge will occur within a few weeks when seasonal weight restrictions are lifted on state and county roads.  Shoulder/lane closures may occur as the contractor begins time sensitive operations in and around the bridge.

Construction will include removal of the existing 165-feet long by 24-feet wide three-span steel I-beam bridge deck, that was constructed in 1953, and replaced with a 33-feet wide (30-feet clear width) deck using galvanized steel I-beams and a 9-inch concrete deck with two-tube railing.

The $852,000 project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration, Michigan Department of Transportation and the Mason County Road Commission.

The detour will include Custer Road, US-10, Scottville and Chauvez roads. Traffic will be detoured by the contractor, Milbocker and Sons, Inc. of Allegan.  

The project is anticipated to be completed by Saturday, June 30.
