(ESCANABA, MI–) The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will suspend some road work in the Escanaba area during the Upper Peninsula State Fair August 13-19. The work stoppage was planned due to the expected high volume of traffic in and around the fairgrounds.
To ease congestion and increase safety, work on the following projects will be on hold during fair week:
- US-2 nighttime resurfacing from North 30th Street to Danforth Road.
- M-35 resurfacing from the Menominee County line to the Delta County Airport.
- Traffic signal modernization and sidewalk and ramp upgrades on US-2, US-41, and M-35 in the city of Escanaba.
Work on these projects is expected to resume Aug. 20.
