MDOT resurfacing of U.S. 45 will start on Thursday

ONTONAGON — The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing about $2.7 million to resurface 13.8 miles of U.S. 45 from northwest of the M-26 junction to Greenland Road in the village of Ontonagon, Ontonagon County.

Work includes asphalt cold milling and resurfacing, concrete sidewalk ramps, drainage structure repairs and pavement markings. The project includes a three-year pavement warranty.

The start date is Thursday and the estimated end date is late September.

Motorists should expect intermittent single-lane closures using traffic regulators throughout the project.

According to MDOT, based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 34 jobs.

This work will extend the lifespan of the roadway and result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety for motorists.
