US-41/M-28 resurfacing and safety project starts June 5

MARQUETTE, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing about $5.7 million in joint repairs, resurfacing and safety improvements on 6.2 miles of US-41/M-28 from Iroquois Drive to Brickyard Road in the city of Negaunee, Negaunee Township, and Marquette Township. Work includes asphalt resurfacing, full-depth joint repairs, and adding left -turn lanes. Highway crossovers will be reconfigured 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.



Closest cities:
Negaunee, Marquette

Start date:
Monday, June 5, 2023

Estimated end date:
Late September 2023

Traffic restrictions:
Motorists should expect shoulder and single-lane closures. Some of the paving will take place at night to reduce traffic impacts. Individual crossovers will be closed for rebuilding, though alternating crossovers will be left open.

Jobs numbers:
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 69 jobs. 

Safety benefit:
This work will improve safety by eliminating dual-direction crossovers, reducing conflict points and providing deceleration lanes.
