Mechanical problem delays work on rail trail bridge, road closure

Mechanical issues with a crane that will position concrete beams for the new Brighton Rail Trail Bridge over Man O’ War Boulevard, has pushed back that work to late Friday night/Saturday morning.

Man O’ War between Pink Pigeon and Liberty/Todds roads will be completely shut down around midnight. Motorists on Man O’ War heading toward I75 can detour via Liberty Road to Star Shoot Parkway to Pink Pigeon. Local access to Helmsdale Place and the Brighton Place Shoppes will be available via the Liberty Road entrance. 

Detour signage and police will be on site. The goal is to set the bridge beams and reopen Man O’ War by 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30.
