The Washtenaw County Road Commission has opened the new Feldkamp Road Bridge over the Saline River, located between US-12 and Klager Rd in Section 17 of Saline Township.
Work completed over the past several months includes the demolition of the deteriorated and weight restricted bridge; driving foundation piles; building the bridge abutments; placement of precast concrete box beams; casting of the concrete bridge deck, barrier, curb & gutter, and bridge approaches; asphalt road paving; guardrail installation and restoration of the site. Minor items of work remain to be completed, but traffic will be maintained during these operations.
The new bridge is capable of carrying full legal loads and has a roadway width consisting of two 11’ wide lanes and two 2’ wide shoulders. The Washtenaw County Road Commission offers our sincere thanks to the area residents, farmers, motorists, postal services, emergency services and school districts who displayed a great deal of patience during the closure of the Feldkamp Road Bridge. The new bridge will provide a reliable transportation link in this area of the county and will serve as an asset to the community.
