MDOT Officials Start Appraisals Near Blue Water Bridge
Wed July 08, 2009 - Midwest Edition Construction Equipment Guide
PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) Michigan transportation officials have started appraising homes and businesses that will be torn down to make way for a $553 million project that includes the expansion of the Blue Water Bridge plaza.
The Times Herald reported the appraisal process started in May. It will determine how much the state will pay for the 30 commercial and 125 residential properties that are expected to be cleared.
The project will lower and expand the plaza. It also includes reconstructing and expanding parts of Interstate 94 and 69, and replacing a bridge over the Black River. Construction could start as early as 2011.
Officials have said the project will wrap up in 2016 or 2017.
The Blue Water Bridge, about 55 mi. northeast of Detroit, connects Port Huron and Ontario over the St. Clair River.
