The heavily traveled multi-use trail along Fruitport Road, and vehicular traffic will have to take a 4-mile detour until June 2008.

The Ottawa County Road Commission started reconstruction of the Fruitport Road Bridge over Pettys Bayou on February 7, with a completion target of June 27. The bridge was originally built in 1948.

Both lanes of the bridge will be closed during all phases of construction. The weather will determine how quickly work can progress, but the plan is for agressive construction, with hopes of completing early.

Construction isn't expected to interfere with boat traffic very much, except when beams are being lifted into place.

The new bridge will include an 8-foot-wide bike/pedestrian lane on the west side.

Anlaan Corporation President, Ryan O'Donnell, said, "We'll go at it as hard as we can and just try to give this community a nice-looking quality project on time."
