Caroline Street in City of Fenton to Close for Bridge Maintenance

Fenton, MI — July 7, 2021

It’s that time of year again, the orange and white barrels pop up, usually without warning. Thanks to the City of Fenton, we get a heads up on this one. A couple of weeks to protect our bridge roadways, we can deal with it.

Beginning on July 12, Caroline Street will be closed from River Street to Adelaide Street to allow bridge maintenance where Caroline crosses the Shiawassee River. A posted detour is Caroline Street to N. Leroy to Silver Lake Road to Adelaide. The detour also works in reverse. The contractor expects the project to be complete by July 25.

Future work will repair two other city-owned bridges:

• Torrey Road over the Shiawassee.
