M-94 projects set to start Aug. 22

MARQUETTE — M-94 resurfacing and a carpool lot project are scheduled to start Aug. 22 in Alger and Marquette counties.

The estimated completition date is Oct. 19.

According to a press release, the Michigan Department of Transportation is investing about $2.1 million to mill and resurface 16 miles of M-94 in Alger and Marquette counties from U.S. 41 to Fair Street in Chatham. The work also includes the expansion of an existing carpool lot at the intersection of M-94 and M-67. The project is covered by a three-year pavement warranty. The carpool lot work will begin Aug. 22 and the paving work is scheduled to begin in early September.

The work will require lane closures under flag control. MDOT said this project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety, and will extend the lifespan of the roadway.
