M-48 Chippewa County resurfacing project starts May 8

NEWBERRY, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing about $1.6 million to resurface nearly 8 miles of M-48 east of M-129 in Chippewa County. The work includes an asphalt overlay, aggregate shoulders, guardrail repairs, and pavement markings.

The project is expected to start May 8 and be finished by July 31, 2024. Work will be performed during daytime hours only. One lane of alternating traffic will be maintained on M-48 using traffic regulators. A 10-foot lane width restriction will be in place during the project.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 19 jobs.
