Closures Announced for MC Drawbridge Inspection

Share this post

Michigan City officials say the historic Franklin Street drawbridge near the lakefront will be closed at certain times this week in preparation for a major rehabilitation project. Today and tomorrow (Nov 4 & 5)  the drawbridge will be closed between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and motorists are asked to use Center Street and Krueger Avenue as a detour. Meanwhile, on Wednesday for sure and Thursday if needed, city officials say the bridge will be opened and closed periodically for mechanical inspection, but the delays should be no different than what is normal for the passage of a  large boat.   Detour signs will be put in place to help guide citizens and visitors to alternate routes around this part of Franklin Street.
