A large highway resurfacing project starts on Monday in the eastern U.P.
M-DOT is spending about $3.5 million to mill and resurface 6 miles of M- 28 from M-123 to Dick Road and 12 miles of M-123 from north of H-40 to M-28 in Chippewa County. The work includes shoulder reconstruction, upgrading concrete sidewalk ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, and pavement markings. The project is covered by a three-year pavement warranty.

Traffic will be maintained in alternating directions under flag control. A 10-foot lane width restriction will be in effect for this project from Aug. 8 until Oct. 15. M-DOT says this project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety, and will extend the lifespan of the roadway. ADA-compliant ramps make sidewalks safer for all users.
