IRONWOOD, Mich. (WLUC) – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is resurfacing 1.3 miles of US-2 BR from US-2 to the Wisconsin state line in Ironwood.

MDOT will invest $673,000 to mill and resurface the roadway, make drainage structure repairs and upgrade concrete sidewalk ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

The project also includes concrete joint repairs and resurfacing on about 0.3 miles of US-2 from the Wisconsin state line to west of Tourist Park Road in Ironwood. The concrete ramp work began in May. Drainage structure work will begin Aug. 9, with joint repairs scheduled to begin Aug. 21, and resurfacing starting Aug. 28. The entire project is expected to be completed in September.

Daytime and nighttime work will require lane shifts and lane closures under flag control. Night work will be limited to a few nights in late August. Some parking lanes will be closed, with parking available on side streets and city parking lots. Access to businesses will be maintained whenever possible.

This project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety, and will extend the lifespan of the roadway. ADA-compliant ramps make sidewalks safer for all users.
