After multiple delays, the Crouse Road Bridge in Hartland Township is expected to re-open Monday.

Crouse Road was closed to traffic from Old US-23 to Hartland Road on June 20th, at which time the preventative maintenance project had an anticipated completion date of August 21st. It was then delayed a couple of times but Livingston County Road Commission Managing Director Steve Wasylk tells WHMI the bridge is scheduled to be open for the Monday morning commute. Work on the Crouse Road Bridge included deck overlay, cleaning and painting steel, and minor drainage repairs.

Detour routes have been in effect and the closure has resulted in increased traffic on Hartland Road from Clyde Road to M-59. That impacted Hartland Consolidated Schools’ transportation department, which has been working to minimize delays to bus routes with school back in session. Facebook photo. (JM)
