Lapeer connector bridge to close for a few days


The connector ramp between I-69/I-94 and Lapeer Road will be closed through Wednesday for bridge repairs. The Michigan Department of Transportation says the work is part of a $2.1 million bridge repair effort to improve and maintain all bridges along I-94 in St. Clair County. Through the day Saturday, the southbound lanes of the Lapeer connector will be closed and traffic will be detoured using Water Street and 10th Street. Starting Sunday, the northbound lane of the Lapeer connector will be closed with traffic detoured using the I-94 service drive and the Water Street interchange. The project is expected to be completed Wednesday.
