Motorists who use the Waltz Bridge in New Boston will have to seek an alternate route starting Thursday morning.
The Waltz Bridge is scheduled to close June 1 at 9 a.m. for repair work on the bridge bearings, Wayne County Roads Division says.
Bridge repairs are estimated to take approximately six months and are weather dependent.
The west side of the bridge will remain open for pedestrian traffic.
The following detours are suggested:
Southbound: Huron River Drive to Sibley Road, proceed eastbound on Sibley Road to South I-275 to South Huron Road heading west, then take South Huron Road to Waltz Road.
Northbound: Take Waltz Road to South Huron Road, proceed east to I-275 North, then take I-275 North to Sibley Road, and follow Sibley Road to Huron River Drive.
