Be aware of Sink Road bridge construction

The Sink Road bridge across the Dowagiac River will be under construction this summer, and the bridge will be closed from approximately May 1 through August 30, 2019.

A detour will require that all traffic to and from the Pokagon Band government offices located at 58620 Sink Road in Dowagiac, including the Rodgers Lake campus and the campground, will need to enter and leave the site from the NORTH, via Sink Road. Access to tribal facilities located east of the bridge, including the Department of Natural Resources at 32142 Edwards Street, Dowagiac, will need to enter and leave the DNR via Edwards Street, to the SOUTH of the Bridge.

Cass County is the lead agency on this project, which is jointly funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the State of Michigan, the Cass County Road Commission, and Pokagon Township. For more information on the Sink Road Bridge replacement project contact Robert Torzynski, tribal planner, at (269) 462-0688.
