M-63 Blossomland Bridge Closing Monday Until March

The M-63 Blossomland Bridge is closing December 1 for two and a half months. The Michigan Department of Transportation will have it shut down from Port Street to Whitwam Drive for bridge painting, electrical motor improvements, bridge controls replacement, and security upgrades. The detour will go to the I-94 Business Route, 5th Street/North Shore Drive, and Klock Road. MDOT adds the work will add years to the life of the bridge. It’s due to open up on Monday, March 15, 2021.
