The Michigan Department of Transportation reminds all drivers that they are responsible for knowing and securing their load. The minimal legal height of any bridge in Michigan is 13 feet, 6 inches, and any truck carrying loads higher than that requires a permit per state law. On Wednesday morning, the Columbia Road bridge over northbound US-127 in Ingham County was struck by a high load, causing extensive damage to the structure. The bridge will remain closed over US-127 until the damage is fully assessed and repairs can be made. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.
    To obtain a load permit, the vehicle owner or driver is required to contact the MDOT Permits Unit at 517-241-8999. Doing so will allow the Permit Unit to work with the driver or company on planning a route that will avoid any bridges or structures too low for their load to safely pass under.
