Construction is expected to begin next week on an estimated $14 million project to replace a highway bridge in southern Michigan.
State transportation authorities say the project will replace the Interstate 94 bridge at Exit 92 and resurface parts of the business loop in Battle Creek. Work is set to begin Monday and finish by Nov. 15.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says the interstate will remain open during construction and will have lane closures, which haven’t yet been announced.
Construction is being done by Oakland County-based C.A. Hull Co. Inc.
A department representative says federal funding will cover about 80 percent of the project while the state will pay for the remainder. (AP)
