In 2024, MDOT plans to crush and shape the existing asphalt pavement and resurface about 14 miles of M-28 from Bergland to Ewen in Ontonagon County. As part of the project, MDOT is proposing reconfiguring the four-lane section of M-28 in Bergland to three lanes, which will include one lane in each direction, a center left-turn lane, and paved shoulders. The four- to three-lane reconfiguration will be the primary focus of this public meeting.
