Grosse Ile — The Wayne County Engineering Department has closed the Grosse Ile Bridge from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Wednesday in order to repave a section of road near the western end of the span.

The county announced Wednesday morning that it will pave a 2,000-foot stretch of road at the west end of the bridge (known locally as the “free bridge”) that connects the island over the Trenton Drain on the Detroit River.

During the closure, motorists are encouraged to use the Grosse Ile pay bridge to gain access to the island.
