MACKINAC ISLAND — A portion of M-185 on Mackinac Island is scheduled to be resurfaced starting Monday, Sept. 12.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $900,000 to mill and resurface 1.4 miles of M-185 from the west to the east city limits of Mackinac Island in Mackinac County. It includes an upgrade of sidewalk ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
There is no vehicle traffic on the island. Some segments of M-185 will be closed to horse and buggy traffic for limited periods during construction.
Resurfacing work is scheduled to take place at night. Pedestrian traffic will be maintained throughout the project using signs, detours and temporary sidewalk ramps.
The project is expected to be completed by Nov. 15.
