Railroad crossing work starts Monday

MUNISING — Railroad crossing work on M-28 and M-149 is set to start Monday in the counties of Alger and Schoolcraft, according to a Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) press release.

MDOT is investing roughly $580,000 to reconstruct three railroad counties in these counties. The crossings that will be affected by the project are located on M-28 near the Anna River in Munising, on M-28 between Munising and Shingleton and on M-149 north of U.S. 2 near Thompson.

Traffic at the M-28 crossings will be maintained with temporary roadways. The temporary roadway near the Anna River will have a single alternating lane open via a temporary traffic signal, and the other M-28 crossing will be maintained as two through-lanes.

A detour will be posted through Manistique for the M-149 crossing.

According to MDOT, the project will result in smoother driving services and greater safety at these railroad crossings. The project is estimated to be completed in early November.
