MDOT permanently closing Canfield pedestrian bridge

Canfield Pedestrian Bridge in Detroit. 

The Michigan Department of Transportation is shutting down a heavily-trafficked pedestrian bridge due to the quality of the structure. 

A release from MDOT said it would be permanently closing the Canfield bridge over M-10

The bridge is a popular route for people looking to get around Detroit due to the Lodge Freeway making it difficult to get around with a vehicle. 

The bridge had been scheduled for removal as part of a reconstruction plan that will modernize the M-10 and I-94 interchange ramp.
