Background: 

In 2023, MDOT will be performing joint repairs and resurfacing US-41/M-28 from Iroquois Drive to Brickyard Road in the city of Negaunee, Negaunee Township, and Marquette Township. In conjunction with this resurfacing project, a project made possible by safety funds will involve reconfiguring the crossovers from the east intersection with Heritage Drive to the end of the grass median east of Pond Road. This will include building "truck loons," areas of pavement outside of the normal traffic lanes to provide additional room for commercial vehicles to turn. The crossover reconfiguration will be the focus of the public meeting.  

Public comment: 
Comments and input can be submitted by mail, phone, or e-mail to Dan Weingarten (WeingartenD@Michigan.gov), in addition to the public meeting.
