The replacement of the 1924 camelback bridge on NB Okemos Rd. will soon begin.   It's a real shame to see another one of these historic structures go.


Some background about the bridge from MDOT.

That sucks, I used to drive over that bridge a ton when I sent to High School in Dewitt.

I used to drive over that bridge to go to the Travelers Club and Tuba Museum, which I understand is now closed.

Bridge demolition is not an easy task you know!!
This project includes the replacement of the existing northbound and southbound structures with a 5 lane, single span bridge including a pedestrian facility along the east side, along with bridge approach and Mt. Hope intersection reconstruction, traffic signal and sidewalk/ramp reconstruction.
