Fewer Closures Needed on Hartland Road for Bridge Work

7/12/14 - Drivers through Hartland Township will have less of a detour to deal with this summer. The Livingston County Road Commission had planned to close down Hartland Road between Dunham and Crouse Roads this past Wednesday for deck patching on the bridge located there. The closure was expected to remain in effect until July 18th. However, that’s no longer the case according to Road Commission Managing Director Mike Craine. He tells WHMI federal funds are being used for the project and when they set up it up three years ago; they assumed the bridge deck would need some minor concrete patches. Craine says they’ll actually be able to skip the first stage of the project, which would have required a weeklong closure of the bridge. He says they can instead go right into deck preservation work on Monday and Tuesday, at which time Hartland Road will be closed between Dunham and Crouse Roads. He says short, one or two day closures will be announced at future dates to seal the surface rails and replace the joints on the bridge deck. Craine says everything will be completed before school starts with the minimum number of closures and the work should extend the life of the bridge by ten years.(JM)
