MAP: Michigan Upper Peninsula road construction projects in 2017

We're approaching warmer months in Michigan, or as some call it, orange barrel season. 

The Michigan Department of Transportation released a full map and list of upcoming minor and major road projects happening this year.

The biggest 2017 project has already started, as I-75 southbound is closed between Detroit and Downriver for the next two years. 

Here's some of the notable projects happening in the U.P. in 2017:

  • US-2/US-41/M-35: April 2017-Jan 2018: 1st year of 2-year project. Replace US-2/US-41/M-35 bridge over Escanaba River and E&LS Railroad bridge over US-2/US-41/M-35. 1 lane open in each direction. 
  • US-2: May-Sept: Resurface 5.2 miles from Oss Rd to US-141 in Crystal Falls.

Below is a full map and list of projects happening in the Upper Peninsula this year:
