Lowell, MI: Sliding the Alden Nash Avenue Bridge Into Place

Lowell, MI: Sliding the Alden Nash Avenue Bridge Into Place

The new bridge will be constructed adjacent to the existing bridge and traffic will be diverted to the new bridge in its temporary location. The old structure was demolished and the new bridge was slid into place. Bridge slide technology greatly reduces the amount of time a bridge is out of service. M-50 was closed and detoured for only two weekends (during demolition and during the slide), as opposed to a multiple-month closure typically associated with a traditional bridge replacement.
