Because of the rain that fell across Mid-Michigan last week, a number of area roadways and bridges remain closed.
According to the Saginaw County Road Commission, the following roads in the county have been closed due to high water:
M-13 or East Road is closed at the Cass River. Traffic is re-routed onto Sheridan Avenue in that area.
In Huron County, seven bridges that were closed last week because of flooding concerns have been reopened. Those bridges are the bridge at Stein Road over the Pigeon River between Gagetown and Notter roads in Winsor Township; Eby Road over the Pinnebog River between Elkton and Pigeon roads in Oliver Township; and Hartsell Road over the Pigeon River between Sebewaing and Canboro roads. The bridge at Moeller Road over the New River between Iseler and New River roads and Walker Road over the New River between Kinch and New River roads in Huron Township; in Brookfield and Grant townships, Gagetown Road over the Pigeon River between Kilmanagh and Canboro roads; and McMillan Road in Meade Township over the east branch of the Pinnebog River between Campbell and Crown roads.
16 bridges have also been closed in Bay County. Those bridges include:
Also a concern because of the flooding are pot holes. WNEM has received word of many roads in the area with gaping potholes that are making travel treacherous. In Bay County, Beaver Road has many potholes from M-13 to the I-75 overpass. Also, 8 Mile Road has many potholes in a stretch between Seidlers and Parish Roads.
WNEM will continue to follow this story and will provide updates when new information is learned.
