Pontiac stretch of M-59 closes for bridge removal
PONTIAC, Mich. – A stretch of M-59 between Telegraph Road and Woodward Avenue will close at 6 p.m. Thursday due to damage to a pedestrian bridge.
According to Michigan Department of Transportation, a pedestrian bridge support was struck by a large unknown vehicle causing extensive damage to the structure. Both eastbound and westbound lanes of the freeway will be closed as workers remove the bridge, which MDOT said poses a threat to public safety in its current state.
There is not an estimated date for when M-59 will reopen.
