BESSEMER, Mich. (WLUC) - Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT)-contracted crews will be completing a $320,000 project to resurface about 1.3 miles of US-2 in Bessemer.

Work will include milling and resurfacing the roadway along with removing and replacing the asphalt portion of the deck surface of the US-2 bridge over the Black River between Bessemer and Wakefield. The work is weather dependent.

The work will require lane closures. One lane will be open in each direction.

This project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety. The work is designed to last until a major reconstruction project planned for the area in 2021.

The project is set to begin Thursday, June 13, and set to end Tuesday, June 18.
