WAKEFIELD, Mich. (WLUC) - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) begins work on a stretch of US-2/M-28 in Gogebic County later this month.

MDOT is investing $560,000 to resurface about 1.2 miles of US-2 from the Little Black River east to Pierce Street and of M-28 from US-2 northeast to Crusher Road in the city of Wakefield.

The project includes asphalt milling and resurfacing, drainage structure repairs, pavement markings and access management in the city of Wakefield. This project includes a three-year materials and workmanship pavement warranty.

Work is set to begin June 21, with estimated completion sometime in September 2021. A map of the project area is available on Mi Drive.

Traffic will be maintained on US-2 and M-28 using traffic shifts and single-lane closures with traffic regulators.

MDOT says this project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety. Access management will reduce the number of potential conflict points along the trunkline, increasing safety.
