With spring comes construction and Marquette county has a whopper of a project for highway 41/M-28 this summer. Resurfacing, new drainage systems and non-motorized pathways are just some aspects from the construction slotted from May–September.

The 2.8 mile stretch of US-41/M-28 is the busiest route in the U.P. Thirty-three thousand vehicles drive this stretch every day. However, higher impact construction will be done at night and non-peak hours.


The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and Marquette Township will hold a virtual public meeting to discuss the 2021 US-41/M-28 rebuilding project in Marquette Township. This meeting immediately precedes a regular township board meeting. There will be a short presentation at 6 p.m. followed by a question-and-answer period.
