Duninick Construction began construction earlier this week on replacing a bridge over the James River 13 miles north Huron or five miles south of Highway 28 on Highway 37.
Highway 37 is closed to traffic between 196th Street and 193rd Street.
During the road closure, a car only detour is being provided on 196th Street and 394th Avenue. Trucks will not be permitted on the detour and are directed to Highway 281 or Highway 25.
This work is part of a nearly $5.3 million contract with Duninick Construction to reconstruct the structure over the James River along with half a mile of grading.
The expected completion date for the structure is November, with an overall completion date of Nov. 15, 2019.
