About this project

In September 2023, the MDOT began work on the $6.4 million investment to build a roundabout at the intersection of US-41/M-28 and Lakeshore Drive in Ishpeming, Marquette County. Work includes asphalt rebuilding, drainage work, guardrail, retaining walls, lighting, signs, pavement markings, bridge widening with steel beams, deck replacement, bridge barrier construction, and approach work. Work was suspended for the winter and resumed this spring.

Traffic impacts

  • During some phases of the project, North Lakeshore Drive will be closed with a posted detour on Country Lane and River Parkway.
  • A temporary signal has been installed at the intersection of US-41/M-28 and Country Lane. This signal is inoperative for the winter but will resume operation when the detour restarts.
  • During the project, one lane will be open in each direction on US-41/M-28.
  • Additional local traffic detours will be required during future phases of the project.
