MDOT lowering speed limit, extending construction project in UP
MARQUETTE, MI— Bridge construction in Iron County will lower the posted speed limit starting Friday.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says work on US-141 over the East Branch of the Net River will require a temporary 25 mph speed limit.
The reduction is being implemented in lieu of an extensive detour. It’s needed to successfully complete deck pouring.
The decreased limit will last through Tuesday at 8 a.m.
And construction on US-41 between Negaunee and Marquette Township will last longer than expected. It was initially supposed to finish this month but is now slated to be completed in October.
