HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — Lane closures will go into effect Tuesday morning as crews work to repair a bridge over S. Washington Avenue that was damaged in a wreck last week.
All lanes on S. Washington Avenue beneath the US-31 overpass in Holland will close Tuesday at 9:30 a.m., according to the Michigan Department of Transportation. The ramp from northbound US-31 to northbound Washington Avenue will also be shut down. Southbound US-31 will continue to have one lane closed.
All affected lanes are expected to be reopened by July 1, MDOT says.
It took hours June 9 for crews to pull a container delivery truck free after its boom ripped through two of the bridge’s steel I-beams. The driver of the truck told police he was unsure if he had locked down the boom after his most recent delivery.
MDOT estimated the fix will cost about $400,000, which is expected to be charged to the truck driver’s company.
