Westbound detour in effect Saturday on US-2 Bessemer project

BESSEMER, Mich. - Beginning Saturday, July 9, westbound US-2 will be detoured at the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) project through the city of Bessemer.

Westbound US-2 will be detoured via northbound Case Street, westbound Iron Street, and southbound Mine Street back to US-2. This detour is expected to remain in place until Aug. 13.

The detour is needed to complete a deep sanitary sewer replacement.

Eastbound US-2 traffic remains on an existing detour.

MDOT, in partnership with the City of Bessemer, is investing about $9.9 million to rebuild 2.7 miles of US-2 from Powdermill Creek to east of Cedar Avenue. The second year of work on the project began in May and is expected to be completed in October.
