Manistee’s Bascule Bridge project falls behind schedule due to weather, other issues
MANISTEE — Repairs and renovations to Manistee’s Bascule Bridge continue to be behind schedule. The Michigan Department of Transportation’s said the $12.6 million project has repeatedly been pushed back because of weather and other issues, but now, the repair work is also being delayed because the parts to fix it are hard to come by and the additional work could cost an additional $300,000 to $400,000. MDOT’s spokesperson for the North Region, James Lake, said they are still hoping to re-open the bridge by the end of March whether or not the repairs are finished. “There was a manufacturing issue with some of the components that are destined to go on the bridge, and they were not made to the proper spec. So, replacement of those parts, where we can still get those installed in time to reopen is in question,” said Lake.
