The state is planning an estimated $45,000,000 project to demolish and replace the aging Lafayette Street Bridge in Bay City over two and a half years beginning in 2020.
M-DOT Bay City Transportation Service Center Manager Jack Hofweber says it no longer makes sense to continually repair the aging structure whose foundation dates to 1938.
Hofweber acknowledged the worries of area business owners that the length of the work may force many to close their doors for good, but adds he’s willing to listen to suggestions on improving access.
Hofweber spoke during a state sponsored open house at Bay City Hall Wednesday evening to hear comments about the project.
