Orchard Beach Bridge Support Drive

Orchard Beach Bridge Drive

Support the Orchard Beach Bridge Replacement Project 

The Orchard Beach bridge over the Black River is an essential transportation link for Cheboygan County. It provides a valuable connection for daily trips for work, shopping, medical, school, recreational activities, and commercial traffic. Perhaps, most importantly, it is a vital link enabling first responders to quickly provide emergency police, fire, and ambulance services. The next closest bridge is almost 5 miles upstream at N. Black River Road requiring over a 10 mile detour and 8 miles downstream at Lincoln Ave. requiring a 16 mile detour.

The years have taken its toll on the bridge’s condition and currently is rated only a 2 out of a possible 10 and thus has weight restrictions due to its deteriorated condition. It needs to be replaced.

Why we need you
The Cheboygan County Road Commission is seeking federal funding to replace this bridge. As part of the application process, a showing of community interest and support is required. While this project has received support from all of our local, state and federal elected officials, a showing of citizen support is also needed. This is where you can help.

How you can help
The Road Commission has a petition so you can show community support. This can be accessed by going to https://forms.gle/tu46AmzKTga1BS8X9  
Thank you for supporting this vital community infrastructure need.
