Road work to begin in Wakefield
WAKEFIELD — The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced that work will start on the U.S. 2/M-28 project in Wakefield on June 21, with an estimated completion date of September.
The project includes asphalt milling and resurfacing, drainage structure repairs, pavement markings and access management in the city of Wakefield.
Traffic will be maintained on U.S. 2 and M-28 using traffic shifts and single-lane closures with traffic regulators.
MDOT is investing $560,000 to resurface about 1.2 miles of U.S. 2 from the Little Black River east to Pierce Street and of M-28 from U.S. 2 northeast to Crusher Road in the city of Wakefield in Gogebic County.
This project is expected to result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety. Access management will reduce the number of potential conflict points along the trunkline, increasing safety, according to MDOT.
This project includes a three-year materials and workmanship pavement warranty.
A map of the project area is available on Mi Drive.
