The Michigan Department of Transportation and Village of Lake Orion crews will begin emergency repairs on the Paint Creek dam under the M-24 bridge on Friday morning. The repairs, according to MDOT, will begin at 9 a.m. and are out of an abundance of caution. Beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 18, crews will perform a detailed underwater inspection at the dam, and repairs will begin Saturday morning. The first part of repairs will include installing a temporary dam along the bank of the Lake Orion dam which will divert water away from the Paint Creek dam. Next, crews will install another temporary dam downstream of the Paint Creek dam.
