A detour was set up on Pulver Road last week, as crews prepare to replace the Rocky River bridge.
Located between Burlew Road and M-216 in Flowerfield Township, the bridge will be replaced this spring by Allegan County-based Milbocker and Sons. The same company will also be charged with replacing the Floating Bridge Road bridge, also spanning the Rocky River in Flowerfield Township.
The projects’ combined cost is $1.2 million. St. Joseph County Road Commission officials said the Michigan Department of Transportation’s local bridge fund will cover 95 percent of the expense.
