A well-traveled bridge is closed indefinitely and repair options are being investigated.

The Genesee County Road Commission closed the Grand Blanc Road Bridge over the Swartz Creek Wednesday. The bridge is located between US-23 and Fenton Road in Mundy Township. It’s said to be one of the most highly traveled bridges in the county, with around 15,000 vehicles utilizing it every day. Commuters are now forced to find alternate routes and traffic is being detoured via Fenton, Hill and Torrey Roads.

At this time, the duration of the bridge closure is indefinite as the road commission explores repair options. Bridge replacement is projected to cost $1.5 (M) million. (JM)
