Friday detours for Bridge Street bridge repairs

Periodic closures of the Bridge Street bridge are expected throughout Friday as repairs continue to the Saugatuck area span.

Officials say there will be four periods of 15 to 20 minutes, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., when traffic will be detoured to allow for the work.

The contractor, Cianbro Construction Co., will be making repairs to the mechanical and electrical components of the bridge.

Signs will be posted about the detours, officials say.
