ALLEN PARK (WXYZ) — The Allen Road Bridge over Ecorse Creek is being removed and reconstructed beginning Monday, Aug. 10, resulting in road closures in the area. The project is expected to be completed by winter, according to the Wayne County Department of Public Services.

Construction will begin with the clearing and removal of trees, bridge demolition and then the relocation of a sanitary sewer. Once that's completed, the bridge removal and replacement phase will begin, county officials say.

Detours include:

  • Traffic traveling southbound on Allen Road – Take westbound Outer Drive to westbound I-94 to southbound M-39.
  • Traffic traveling northbound on Allen Road- Take northbound M-39 to eastbound I-94 to eastbound Outer Drive.
