One Bridge Opened – Second Bridge Expected To Open Today

st+clair+county+drawbridgeWhile the public saw the Military Street Bridge being tested last week, only the M-29 Bridge over the Pine River in St. Clair was able to open last evening as scheduled.  The bridge became open to regular traffic at about 8 p.m., with the Military Street Bridge expected to  reopen sometime Tuesday (today).  According to reports there are still some inspection issues that need to be addressed, and while the plan is to have the bridge operational sometime March 31, a specific time has not been announced.  The two bridges in St. Clair County have been closed since January.  The Michigan Department of Transportation has spent the past three months making electrical and mechanical upgrades as part of the $2.8 million project. Both the M-29 and the Military Street bridges were painted during that time as well.

Two In Custody Following Robbery

sheriff officeSt. County Sheriff’s office took two men into custody Sunday morning after allegedly robbing the Capac Pharmacy, 136 N. Main St.  According to a press release deputies responded after receiving both an alarm from the building and a call from a witness just before 3 a.m.  The witness had given a description of the vehicle involved.  A patrol car was posted at I-69 and Allen Road, and upon trying to stop the passing vehicle, the suspects accelerated and a police chase led the officers into Macomb County.  The chase ended near 1-94 and 23 Mile Road.  A 28-year-old man and 20-year-old man, both from Detroit, were taken into custody and are being held at the St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center.  The two are also believed to have been responsible for two previous Capac Pharmacy break-ins on September 23 and October 14.  The incident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau.
