Escanaba River Bridge Closures On Wednesday

Eastbound and westbound US-2/US-41/M-35 is scheduled to be closed intermittently at the Escanaba River Feb. 14 for work zone cleanup at the Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) bridge project.

The closures are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14, and end before 4 p.m. the same day. These closures are required to clean traffic control devices and maintain their reflectivity.

Motorists should expect delays of 10 minutes or less.

MDOT is investing $20.5 million to replace both the US-2 bridge over the Escanaba River and the Escanaba and Lake Superior (E&LS) Railroad bridge over US-2. This two-year project also includes reconstructing and realigning 0.8 miles of roadway and replacing 3,000 feet of E&LS Railroad track.
