U.P. Road Work Projects Announced for Coming Year

The resurfacing of I-75 near M-134 will be among $80 million in state road projects in the Upper Peninsula this year.

Nine miles of the interstate highway will be resurfaced, from M-134 to the Mackinac/Chippewa County line, at a cost of $12.5 million, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).

Projects outside Mackinac County include resurfacing sections of US-41, M-28, M-26, and US-2 (near the Delta County line), guard rail upgrades and bridge repairs at US-2 near the Wisconsin state line, and completing construction on the Ontonagon River Bridge, including the relocation of M-64 and M38, at a total cost of $25 million, in Ontanagon County.

In total, 275 miles of pavement will be upgraded, representing 15 percent of the Upper Peninsula's trunklines.
