The long anticipated Waltz Road Bridge project has begun.

Crews have been active at the site for about a week.

The bridge was closed last year when it was deemed unsafe.

The county, who is responsible for the project, stated back when the bridge was first closed that a new bridge would be completed by the end of 2018.

An updated timeline on the exact completion date has not been released, but sources close to the Huron Hub have said the bridge will likely be completed in spring 2019.

On Aug. 23, the Wayne County Board of Commissioners approved a construction contract between Wayne County and Toebe Construction, LLC of Wixom, to reconstruct the Waltz Road Bridge.

According to Toebe Construction’s website, the company has been building the transportation infrastructure that supports the economies of Michigan and Ontario since 1922.

“The reopening of the Waltz Road Bridge has been and continues to be our number one priority as it is critical to both our residents and business owners alike,” said David Glaab, Huron Township supervisor, in late August.
