U.S. 41 to receive work
HOUGHTON — Beginning this spring, the Michigan Department of Transportation will invest $9 million to rebuild 1.1 miles of U.S. 41 from McInnes Drive to Isle Royale Street in Houghton.
The work will include converting the four-lane boulevard section to two lanes with designated turn lanes at major intersections, widening College Avenue to add a center left-turn lane, storm sewer improvements, and city sanitary sewer and water main replacements. Work is expected to be suspended for the winter in late September and be completed in fall 2022.
Work is scheduled to start today.
Traffic shifts, lane closures and one-way detours are planned during each summer for this project.
