Houghton, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – M-DOT says tests of the Portage Lake Lift Bridge between Houghton and Hancock are scheduled for this week as part of ongoing maintenance work and will cause brief delays for motorists.

Contractors will be performing test lifts of the bridge, requiring brief closures of the bridge to traffic, which will cause delays of 10 to 15 minutes throughout the day.

The $8.4 million project involves upgrades and preventive maintenance on the bridge and is scheduled to be completed in mid-April.
