Groesbeck Closed For Removal Of Damaged Old Pedestrian Bridge

MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) – The Rose Street pedestrian bridge in Mount Clemens needs to come down immediately.

That’s the word Friday from the Michigan Department of Transportation, which says the bridge was struck by a truck recently.  Inspectors say it’s no longer sound, must be removed and cannot have traffic underneath it.

The foot bridge, over the intersection of Rose Street and M-97/Groesbeck, south of Hall Rd. — between Original Buscemi’s and the Mount Clemens Ice Arena — is expected to be pulled down by crews Friday afternoon, MDOT says.

Until the job is complete, Groesbeck will be closed between Cass and Elizabeth Rd.

Groesbeck expected to reopen to traffic very late Friday night or early Saturday morning. In the meantime, MDOT says it’s OK for drivers to detour through the neighborhood.

It’s unclear at this time if there are plans to replace to bridge.
