GENESEE AVE. BRIDGE CLOSURE BETWEEN NIAGARA AND WATER
Due to flood waters, the Genesee Avenue Bridge (between Niagara Street and Water Street) will be CLOSED until further notice. An inspection of the bridge will be conducted once flood waters have receded to normal levels, and will reopen when safe to do so. During this time, all Genesee Avenue Bridge traffic will be detoured to the Johnson Street Bridge. Please follow the detour set up, or seek an alternate route if possible. Residents are urged to bypass the Genesee Avenue Bridge, and the City of Saginaw asks drivers to please be patient while the closure is in place.
Saginaw Charter Township
We are strongly urging those residents in the Riverforest Subdivision and Condominiums, as well as Valentine Court to evacuate. Due to the amount of water covering St. Andrews Road, and the water over Center Road, we have rescue vehicles taking those out that wish to leave.
Question and Answer from Thomas Township officials.
Due to flooding conditions all bridges in Thomas Twp have been closed. If you need to leave Thomas Twp we are suggesting you travel south on Hemlock road to M-57 to I-75 (in Clio). Evacuations have occurred but we are asking you to monitor your conditions and evacuate if you feel it is necessary. The flooding is unpredictable and may change at a moment's notice. We ask that you stay home if possible and do not travel. Many of our roads have water across them. PLEASE DO NOT drive through water. If shelter is needed due to evacuations please go to Swan Valley High School or Hemlock High School.
