News Brief
Silverbell opening next week

June 22, 2011

It’s been a long time, but according to the Oakland County road commission, next Thursday (June 30), a ribbon-cutting ceremony will officially open the new $4 million Silver Bell Road bridge over the Grand Trunk Western Railroad tracks.

Silver Bell Road has been closed since Feb. 9, when the old bridge was shut down for “safety concerns.” This section of Silver Bell serves as the main truck access route for the GM plant (which will resume production shortly) and is a main east/west corridor for Orion Township.

The event begins at 10:30 a.m. and will take place at the east end of the new bridge. Parking will be available along Silver Bell Road east or west of the bridge.
