M28 not closed yet

As of 10:30 a.m. today, M-28 has not yet been closed. MDOT is still anticipating closing the highway today for Michigan Department of Natural Resources and US Fish and Wildlife fire crews to conduct a back-burn operation from the highway.

More than 1,500 acres have already burned in the blaze. It started over the weekend from a lightning strike.

A wind advisory for the area is making the effort even more dangerous.

MDOT will announce the closure when it occurs, and will post information for motorists in the area.
