Westbound detour on US-2 Bessemer project to be lifted Monday
August 11, 2022
BESSEMER, Mich. - Beginning Monday, Aug. 15, the detour on westbound US-2 will be lifted on the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) project through the city of Bessemer.
Westbound US-2 will return to its permanent lane Monday morning. Eastbound US-2 traffic remains on an existing detour.
The detour was needed to complete a deep sanitary sewer replacement.
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. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 126 jobs.
