A heads-up to those traveling by way of the old U.S. 80 Bridge.
MDOT is converting the bridge from two lanes to one lane.
The purpose of this conversion is to provide better passing.
Motorists will now be required to stop at the end of the bridge and wait for opposing traffic to clear before crossing.
The old U.S. 80 Bridge is approximately 1.5 miles west of Norrell Road between Bolton and Clinton.
Crews will begin the traffic switch today.
