MDOT Summer Road Work in U.P. to Get Underway Soon

ST. IGNACE, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) announced its road construction plans for this summer in the Upper Peninsula.

Repairs on roads and bridges will happen across the U.P. starting May 15. The end date of each project varies based on the amount of damage needing repair.

MDOT plans to invest about $2.9 million to repair three bridges in Iron and Ontonagon counties, along with $4.3 million in repair work on a stretch of road between Houghton and Hancock.

In addition, those roadwork projects are expected to directly and indirectly support 35 jobs and 52 jobs, respectively.
