Work on I-75 closes lane
FLINT TWP. — A single-lane closure will be in effect on the Maple Road overpass spanning I-75 in Genesee County while a Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) crew installs a temporary barrier to prevent traffic from using the shoulder of westbound Maple Road. This barrier will prevent traffic from placing unnecessary weight on the bridge fascia beam, which has sustained damage from previous high-load hits. A project to replace Maple Road over southbound I-75 is planned in 2020. — G.G.
