WHAT: The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will be hosting a groundbreaking ceremony to observe the modernization of the I-94/I-69 freeway and the Black River Bridge replacement. This $90 million project is partially funded by a federal TIGER grant.
WHO: Candice Miller, U.S. Representative
Kirk T. Steudle, State Transportation Director
Victor Mendez, FHWA Administrator
Phil Pavlov, State Senator
Paul Muxlow, State Representative
WHEN: Friday, March 25, 2011
WHERE: Girl Scout Center
2186 Water St.
The actual groundbreaking will follow outside the center.
BACKGROUND: The major improvements near the international border crossing at the Blue Water Bridge will ensure that Port Huron remains a viable trade crossing while also making the roads safer for people who live and vacation in the Blue Water area. This two-year project is scheduled to be complete by November 2012 and includes widening 2.2 miles of eastbound and westbound I-69/I-94 between the Lapeer connector and Pine Grove Avenue and replacing the bridge over the Black River with three separate structures.
MDOT says: Remember - in Ice and Snow, Take it Slow!
