US-41/M-28 Resurfacing, Marquette
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will resurface 2.8 miles of highway, along with building a nonmotorized pathway in Marquette County. The project will extend the life of the pavement on the busiest route in the Upper Peninsula, with average daily traffic counts of up to 33,000 vehicles.
Work is being staged to minimize impacts on traffic during the heaviest traffic periods. Some work will be done at night. One lane
A separate project to build a nonmotorized path from Wright Street to Commerce Drive is planned along with this work. This path will provide safe access for bicycles and pedestrians, creating an important connection between current and future nonmotorized improvements planned by Marquette Township.
Quality of life improvements include a smoother resurfaced pavement and rebuilt shoulders from Wright Street to Washington Street that will benefit multiple users, including bicyclists.
