The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be investing about $840,000 to replace the M-26 culvert at Quincy Creek in Houghton County. The project includes scour countermeasures and approach reconstruction.
The project map is available on Mi Drive.
M-26 will be closed at Quincy Creek with through-traffic detoured on US-41.The detour is expected to be in place beginning Aug. 2 and is scheduled to be lifted by Aug. 17. Some work will require lane closures with traffic regulators or shoulder closures.
The project will build a safe, long-term replacement for a culvert and roadway damaged in the June 2018 Father's Day Flood.
