Morrish Rd. bridge project to cause detour this summer

SWARTZ CREEK — This summer the City of Swartz Creek is scheduled to replace the bridge deck on Morrish Road, just south of Miller Road, that runs over the Swartz Creek, which will cause the bridge to be completely shut down, forcing a detour of traffic to be set up for that area for the duration of the project.

The bridge construction is scheduled to begin on approximately June 17, and it is estimated that the project will take three months to complete.

During this time, a detour will be in place from southbound Morrish Road to Hill Road and from Miller Road to Wade Street. Traffic will be limited to business and local traffic access only.

“When we shut this down, it will be an inconvenience to a lot of businesses,” said Tom Svrcek, the director of public services for the City of Swartz Creek.

The City of Swartz Creek website will announce details about the bridge project as well as show the detour routes.

Anyone with any concerns about this matter should contact Svrcek at the city offices at 810-635-4464. — A.P.
