US-23 shoreline repairs north of Rogers City start Jan. 13Contact: James Lake, MDOT Office of Communications, 906-250-0993, LakeJ1@Michigan.gov Agency: Transportation
ESTIMATED STARTING DATE:
Monday, Jan. 13, 2020 (weather dependent)
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $289,000 to repair the shoreline slope between Lake Huron and the Huron Sunrise nonmotorized trail along US-23 about 3 miles north of Rogers City. The work will include placement of boulders along the lakeshore, backfilled with smaller stones.
This work will require shoulder closures and a single-lane closure with traffic regulators. That section of the Huron Sunrise Trail will be closed during construction.
This project involves repairing current damage to the shoreline right next to the nonmotorized trail, as well as preventing further erosion that could damage US-23.
