The Genesee County Road Commission said construction operations on the Mill Road Bridge over the Flint River in Flint Township has been suspended due to an ongoing state-wide labor dispute. The Operating Engineers Local 324 and the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association (MITA) are currently in negotiations over bargaining privileges. This lockout effects dozens of projects statewide, including Interstate 69 reconstruction in Flint (MDOT Project, not GCRC). As a result, the Mill Road Bridge construction will be temporarily suspended until all parties can come to a formal agreement. Please visit the Michigan Department of Transportation’s website for further details on the lockout. GCRC officials said they remain committed to replacing the Mill Road Bridge as soon as negotiations and contractual restraints allow.
