It's already August and we've pretty much weather a couple of hot spells, so what's a little traffic inconvenience now? You can dream about snow flurries while your foot is on and off the brake pedal. (Any by the time, this project wraps up, there just might be snow flurries.)

The Michigan Department of Transportation (M-DOT) will be fixing the M-43 (East Michigan Avenue) bridge over the Kalamazoo River in Kalamazoo. According to M-DOT, "the $268,000 investment includes deck patching, crack sealing, resealing joints, concrete curb and gutter, approach work, and pavement markings."

The project starts Monday, August 5th and will go for two months, until October 18th. M-DOT says there will be single-lane closures with one lane open in each direction, so it will not be too painful except when it's busy.
