DNR bridge replacement project in Houghton County will produce longer travel times

A bridge replacement project along the Donken-Tapiola Road is expected to delay motorists over an 8-week construction period, beginning early next month.

Mobilization of the project to install an arched culvert over the Misery River, south of Donken and just east of M-26 is scheduled to begin June 6.

“This will close down a fairly well-traveled road for that duration,” said Brad Carlson, Baraga unit manager for the DNR’s Forest Resources Division. “It will not block access to any private property as there is alternative access, it just may take longer and through travel will be restricted.”
