M-28 rebuilding project in Munising starts May 2

MUNISING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the City of Munising are investing about $15.5 million to rebuild 4.7 miles of M-28 between Brook Street and Commercial Street in Munising and resurface the highway from Commercial Street to east of Christmas.

The project, now in its third year, includes streetscape improvements, a shared-use pathway, a roundabout at the M-28/Alger County Road H-58 intersection, and major upgrades to city water and sewer infrastructure. Work this year will focus on the segment of M-28 between Bayview Drive and Commercial Street in Munising. The project was extended into this year so that work can be coordinated with a city project to upgrade the sanitary sewer system in the Brown's Addition neighborhood.
