GARDEN, Mich. - Work will begin May 16 on a $2.7 million Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) investment to resurface the roadway and replace a culvert on M-183 in Delta County. The project includes 2.1 miles of asphalt resurfacing, guardrail replacement, and pavement markings from the M-183/US-2 intersection south to the culvert location.

Traffic restrictions:
One alternating lane will be open at the culvert during work using a temporary traffic signal. Later in the summer, motorists can expect intermittent lane closures using traffic regulators during the resurfacing portion of the project. An 11-foot width restriction will be in place at the culvert.
