    The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has awarded an emergency contract to begin debris removal at two bridge locations on M-30 in Midland and Gladwin counties, following a historic flooding event in May.
    M-30 structures over the Tittabawassee River in northern Midland County and over the Tobacco River in Gladwin County were both impacted by flooding. Midland-based Fisher Contracting was awarded the bid at $1.2 million and begins this week. Debris removal is expected to finish by July 22.
   

Right: Debris removal at M-30 over the Tittabawassee River is expected to begin this week.

M-30 over the Tittabawassee River

    The contractor will use a barge to remove existing debris and trees blocking the bridge piers.
    Following debris removal, inspection of the existing piers will be completed and a maintenance plan established.
    MDOT plans to administer an emergency contract to address required maintenance for the bridge and bridge approach, following complete review of the existing structure and determining repair options.

M-30 over the Tobacco River

    The contractor will remove existing debris, including remaining pieces of the original causeway bridge washed away during the flood.
    Following debris removal, inspection of the existing channel will begin and soil borings collected.
    MDOT is currently working with temporary bridging solution vendors to determine an appropriate temporary bridge structure that will remain in place for several years while permanent bridge plans are established.
    Following debris removal, MDOT will administer an emergency contract to begin construction of a temporary bridge at M-30 over the Tobacco River.
