M-28 construction project in Munising resumes Monday
MUNISING — Work on the M-28 Munising project will restart Monday, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation.
The work will require various traffic configurations during different project stages. A signed detour, which is expected to last most of the summer, will be in place soon. Westbound M-28 traffic will stay on M-28 while eastbound M-28 traffic will be detoured onto Superior Street and back to M-28. Updates will be provided prior to traffic shifts.
A map of the project area is available on Mi Drive.
For more information about the project, visit the project website. MDOT has set up a phone line with voicemail to receive calls from residents, business owners, and the motoring public regarding the project. Call 906-786-1830, ext. 600.
MDOT and the city of Munising are investing about $15.5 million to rebuild 4.7 miles of M-28 between Brook Street and Commercial Street in Munising and resurface the highway from Commercial Street to east of Christmas.
A shared-use pathway will be built along the north side of M-28 from Bayview Drive to the intersection of M-28 and Alger County Road H-58.
A roundabout was built last year at the M-28/H-58 intersection. The project also includes upgrades to city infrastructure. Major work is expected to be completed this year, with final cleanup in 2022.
