(WXYZ) — Getting around metro Detroit can be tough when you live and work on an island like Grosse Ile, and your lifeline to the mainland is a bridge.

7 Investigator Heather Catallo took a look at what Wayne County has been doing for the bridge, which is in much need of repair.

It's the most-used bridge on the island, and the same bridge inspector who she exposed last year for allegedly falsifying bridge inspection reports, was the one who was supposed to order the crucial inspection that was missed.

Check out reports from MDOT and Wayne County on the bridge below, from 2013, 2015 and 2018.
