LANSING – The Michigan Department of Transportation will begin several road construction projects next week in the Upper Peninsula.
They will begin resurfacing about 8 miles of U.S. 2 from Iron Mountain to Norway. Drivers can expect lane closures and traffic shifts. It is scheduled to be completed by mid-August.
Resurfacing of more than 21 miles of M-35 also begins Monday. It will run from the middle branch of the Escanaba River near Gwinn to County Road 480 north of Palmer. It is expected to be completed by late July.
A section of I-74 in Chippewa County will be closed beginning next Tuesday until late August to allow MDOT to replace a culvert.
It will be closed between M-134 and M-48 while crews replace a large culvert less than a mile north of the Chippewa/Mackinac county line. A detour will run along the Mackinac Trail.
