Eighth Street Bridge Work Starts This Week

By Beth Milligan | July 26, 2021

The City of Traverse City and Anlaan Corporation will be reconstructing the East Eighth Street bridge starting Monday, July 26 and continuing through November 13.

Work will include removal and replacement of the bridge superstructure, including widened sidewalks on the north and south side of the bridge, improvements to the sidewalk under the bridge on the west end, and architectural elements added to the bridge fascia beams. The bridge will be closed to all traffic including pedestrians for the duration of the project.

Work is also underway on the South Cass and Park Street bridges. Accordingly, a vehicular detour route will be provided utilizing East Front Street, East State Street, South Union Street, Lake Avenue, and Boardman Avenue (see map). The intersection of East Eighth Street and Boardman Avenue will remain open. Pedestrians may use Washington Street and/or the Boardman Lake Trail for crossing the river. The Boardman River will be closed to traffic under the bridge.
