Construction on the Blue Water Bridge began this week, just a couple days earlier than scheduled. The construction on the westbound span moves all international traffic to the eastbound span for three months as workers resurface the road and perform maintenance work. There is one travel lane in each direction across the St. Clair River on the eastbound span. Two lanes will be open at the customs approach on both ends of the bridge. Authorities say that during the construction period, bicyclists will not be allowed to ride across the bridge, wide loads will be restricted to less than 11 feet, and there will not be lanes available for NEXUS and FAST drivers. The closure is expected to slow crossing and authorities did not speculate as to the length of wait times. Construction is expected to be completed by early July.
