About this project

In 2024, we will be closing, demolishing and rebuilding the 36th Ave. bridge over Hwy 169 in Plymouth. The project is necessary due to a mandated replacement because of the current condition of the 36th Ave. bridge. Crews will raise the height of the new bridge to provide a safer standard clearance over Hwy 169. This increases safety greatly by reducing vehicle hits on the bridge.

Summary of work

  • Demolish 36th Ave. bridge
  • Rebuild 36th Ave. bridge
