ISHPEMING — The US-41/Lakeshore Drive signal upgrade project is scheduled to begin Monday, June 18th.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing about $45,000 to upgrade the traffic signals at the US-41/M-28 intersection with Lakeshore Drive. Work includes adding reflective backplate, adding an additional signal head for eastbound and westbound directions, upgrading senors and adding a left-turn signal.

The work will require lane closures with traffic shifts. The project is expected to be completed by Friday, June 22nd.
