Start: April 2020     End: Summer 2022
What Is Being Done?


View project map

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will rebuild M-28 between Brook Street and Commercial Street in Munising and resurface the highway from Commercial Street to east of Christmas. A shared-use pathway will be built along the north side of M-28 from Bayview Drive to the M-28/H-58 intersection. A roundabout has already been built at the M-28/H-58 intersection. The project also includes city utility work and streetscape improvements.




How Traffic Will Be Affected:

Traffic delays and detours will be minimized. Westbound M-28 will be open for the duration of project. Access to the pathway and dock will be maintained. Pedestrian detours are planned.

Eastbound M-28 will be detoured down Chestnut Street to Superior Street to M-28 for portions of 2020. For portions of 2021, eastbound M-28 will be detoured down Hickory Street to Superior Street to M-28.

Safety Benefit:

The roundabout will decrease driver confusion and make traffic flow smoother and safer. Intersection safety improvements, eliminating a city street access point, and extending a three-lane section will increase safety for all users.

Additional Information:

The project will combine needed road work with replacement of aging water main. The streetscape project will create aesthetic improvements for the downtown.
