Finally!!!

The Paul Street bridge over the Southfield Freeway (M-39) finally re-opened to automobile traffic last week. It was only a month behind schedule, which is something considering that they started work on it three weeks early.

The bridge is still closed to pedestrians, at least officially, because they haven't finished the concrete work on the sidewalk portion of it. However, there isn't anyone or anything there to prevent a determined pedestrian from walking across the bridge.

The bridge still has a series of stop signs to regulate traffic across the bridge. The traffic signals that were there before have not been reactivated.

I'm not certain about the status of the Tireman Road bridge over the Southfield Freeway. It was still closed the last time I checked.

Amen to that. Makes it much easier to go to Best Buy, Borders,
ect. Now if only they could do
something about the flooding on
the southbound service drive just
north of Paul. The water was better than a foot deep there last week.
