BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — After a shutdown of work to maintain safe distances, the 100th Street bridge replacement project is starting up again.

The project was stopped around April 8, but a lane closure scheduled for April 20 indicates work is beginning again.

The Michigan Department of Transportation confirmed that to FOX 17 on Friday.

The bridge is locally famous for getting hit several times during a few weeks in the winter of 2018. It was damaged enough to warrant temporary repairs to keep it operating until new designs were produced to allow replacing the bridge.

It was demolished in late March before work stopped.
