ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
Late July 2021
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing about $1 million to replace a culvert on M-26 over Umbrella Tree Creek west of Goat Hill Road in Houghton County. Work includes asphalt paving, culvert replacement, guardrail, scour countermeasures, and pavement markings.
The project map is available on Mi Drive.
One alternating lane of traffic will be maintained via temporary traffic signals from May 10 through late July. A 12-foot width restriction will be in place for the duration of this project.
The project will provide a long-term replacement for a culvert and roadway damaged in the June 2018 Father's Day Flood.
