Police, road crews re-open M-28

MARQUETTE – The Michigan State Police tells ABC 10 that M-28 between the city of Munising and Kawbawgam Road in Marquette is once again open for drivers to use as of 3 p.m.


M–28 was shutdown by the Michigan State Police at 8 p.m. this evening.

The stretch of road between Munising and Kawbawgam Road in Marquette County will remain closed until mid–day tomorrow. M–28 was shutdown due to high winds, poor road conditions, and visibility issues.

The Marquette Police Department​ is also now advising motorists in the Marquette area to avoid driving on US 41 South and to find alternate routes due to white-out conditions between Shiras Hills and Harvey. Blowing snow has substantially reduced visibility and has caused hazardous driving conditions. MPD says Motorists should not travel unless it is necessary. Those who must travel should allow for longer drive-times, and prepare for abruptly changing weather conditions.
