The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Isabella County Road Commission has closed the Vernon Road overpass at US-127 in Isabella County, after the bridge sustained damage following a high-load hit on June 1. Crews have inspected the damage and determined that Vernon Road will remain closed and detoured Mission Road to Rosebush Road, Rosebush Road to Isabella Road, Isabella Road to Vernon Road, until repairs are complete.
Design efforts for the repairs will begin immediately, with bid letting expected later this summer. MDOT hopes to have repairs complete this fall, dependent on design details, availability of materials, and weather.
