M-28 Rebuilding Project - Munising

Start: April 2020     End: Summer 2022

What Is Being Done
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will rebuild M-28 between Brook Street and Commercial Street in Munising and resurface the highway from Commercial Street to east of Christmas. A shared-use pathway will be built along the north side of M-28 from Bayview Drive to the M-28/H-58 intersection. A roundabout has already been built at the M-28/H-58 intersection. The project also includes city utility work and streetscape improvements.

How Traffic Will Be Affected
Traffic delays and detours will be minimized. Westbound M-28 will be open for the duration of project. Access to the pathway and dock will be maintained. Pedestrian detours are planned.

Eastbound M-28 will be detoured down Chestnut Street to Superior Street to M-28 for portions of 2020. For portions of 2021, eastbound M-28 will be detoured down Hickory Street to Superior Street to M-28.

Safety Benefit
The roundabout will decrease driver confusion and make traffic flow smoother and safer. Intersection safety improvements, eliminating a city street access point, and extending a three-lane section will increase safety for all users.

Additional Information
The project will combine needed road work with replacement of aging water main. The streetscape project will create aesthetic improvements for the downtown.
