BESSEMER, Mich. – The bright orange road cones went up yesterday in Bessemer as the Michigan Department of Transportation crews begin a $320,000 project starting today to resurface about 1.3 miles of US-2 in Bessemer. Work will include milling and resurfacing the roadway along with removing and replacing the asphalt portion of the deck surface of the US-2 bridge over the Black River between Bessemer and Wakefield. The work is weather dependent. The work will require lane closures. One lane will be open in each direction. This project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety. The work is designed to last until a major reconstruction project planned for the area in 2021. The project is set to begin today, and run until Tuesday, June 18.
