FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - The Michigan Department of Transportation will be closing the Saginaw Street bridge over I-69 while contractors complete deck patching starting on Wednesday.

The work, which will close Saginaw Street entirely into November, is part of a $100 million project to rebuild 2.5 miles of I-69 from Fenton Road to Dort Highway in Flint and maintain 20 bridges.

Southbound traffic on Saginaw Street will be detoured on 7th Street, Grand Traverse Street and 12th Street. Northbound traffic on Saginaw Street will be detoured to 12th Street, Grand Traverse Street and 5th Street.

The project is scheduled to be completed on Nov. 4, but that date could change depending on weather conditions.
