UPDATED: Bay County announces bridge closures effective immediately

      Many Bay County bridges are closed

      Bay County had announced several bridge closures until the road commission can determine if they are safe.

      The Bay County Road Commission tells us that because of the number of locations effected and because of the shortened time frame that they have to deal with, there may not be detour signs directing traffic around the closed bridge.

      The concern was that due to flooding, snow and ice there is possible erosion.

      The reason for these closures is because of a Federal mandate dealing with flood waters at a bridge.

      All reported bridged below are NOW OPEN

      The bridges that were closed are:

      Fraser Township

      Seven Mile Road over Tebo Drain, immediately north of Erickson

      Erickson Road over Tebo Drain, immediately west of Seven Mile Road

      Mackinaw Road over Johnson Drain, immediately south of Townline 16

      Pinconning Township

      Hunter Road over the Pinconning River, north of Pinconning Road

      Fraser Road over the Pinconning River, north of Neuman Road
