BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The 100th Street bridge deck over US-131 in southern Kent County was struck again Thursday by a semi-truck.
The crash happened around 6 p.m. The semi stopped about half a mile from the bridge in Byron Township and the driver is cooperating with investigators, Michigan State Police say. No one was hurt.
A closure was in effect while crews cleaned up and checked out the bridge before the road reopened around 8 p.m.
This marks the fifth time this year the bridge deck has been hit. MDOT noted the bridge is lower than many in Michigan, but also said that information is listed in trucker manuals (PDF). It’s not clear what’s causing all the incidents now when there haven’t been any problems for years.
