Road reopens after sinkhole repairs

ISHPEMING — A road in Ishpeming that has been closed for most of the week is back in working order.

MDOT announced Friday that Business Route M-28, better known as East Division Street, was open once again as of Friday morning. The route had been closed between Jasper and Fourth Streets since Tuesday to allow crews to repair a sinkhole that formed over an abandoned steam tunnel running beneath the road.

The City of Ishpeming took to Facebook to thank all of those involved in getting the project done so quickly.
