M-64 detour for bridge repairs near White Pine starts August 3
WHITE PINE, MI— Northbound and southbound M-64 will be closed and detoured for bridge work at the Mineral River near White Pine in Ontonagon County beginning Thursday, August 3.
Southbound M-64 will be detoured via L.P. Walsh Road to M-64 south of White Pine. The route will be reversed for northbound traffic. The detour is expected to be in place through October 20.
The work is part of a $2.9 million Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) project to repair three bridges in Iron and Ontonagon counties. Work includes a deep overlay; epoxy overlay; joint replacement; deck, railing and substructure patching; curb and gutter repairs; guardrail; and approach work.
This work will extend the lifespan of the bridges and result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety for motorists. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 35 jobs.
