Nighttime paving on M-553 set for next week

MARQUETTE, Mich. - Motorists should expect single-lane closures on M-553 between Division Street and US-41 in Marquette for nighttime paving work beginning June 24 as part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) rebuilding project.

Beginning at 7 p.m. each evening, one lane will be open in each direction on M-553. The closures are expected to be lifted by 7 a.m. the following mornings. This nighttime paving work is expected to be completed by June 28.

This work is weather dependent, and the schedule is subject to change.

The work is part of MDOT’s $1 million investment to mill and resurface about 2 miles of M-553. Work will include asphalt milling and paving, sidewalk ramps, curb and gutter, and pavement markings. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 12 jobs.

Work started May 20 and the overall project is expected to be completed in August.
