MARQUETTE, Mich. – US-41/M-28 in Marquette will be closed and detoured at the Front Street roundabout for nighttime paving work on Wednesday, Nov. 2, and Thursday Nov. 3, as part of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) rebuilding project from the roundabout to Furnace Street in Marquette.
Beginning at 6 p.m. each evening, the roundabout and bypass lanes will be closed and traffic detoured via a posted detour on local streets. The detour is expected to be lifted by 6 a.m. the following mornings.
This work is weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change.
The work is part of MDOT’s $3.7 million investment to rebuild 0.6 miles of highway. The project includes asphalt rebuilding; cold milling and asphalt resurfacing of the roundabout; water main, storm sewer and drainage repairs and improvements; traffic signal work; signs; and pavement markings. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 47 jobs.
Work started May 16 and is expected to be completed in November.
