June 22, 2022
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT DATED JUNE 22, 2022
FROM: CAROL FUSHER, ADMINISTRATOR, IRON ORE HERITAGE RECREATION AUTHORITY
ISHPEMING, MI – Pleased be advised that Oberstar has been hired by the Iron Ore Heritage Recreation Authority for an asphalt repair project on portions of the IOHT from Winthrop Junction in Ishpeming (start of pavement at Washington Street in Ishpeming) to the Canadian National railroad crossing in Negaunee starting on June 27. Portions of the trail will be closed for 2 weeks to allow crews to cut bumpy and cracked pavement, cut and remove tree roots, and repave. The work will be down in sections ranging from 2 feet long to 203 feet long. Please use caution in these areas. IOHT Trail users in Negaunee and Ishpeming are advised to use the detours provided on the attached maps. Users should expect to use city roadways to detour around construction areas for their safety and the safety of the construction crews.
Attached are three maps with detours as Oberstar crews work to upgrade the asphalt. From Washington Street to the Ishpeming Senior Center on Greenwood Street, trail users should use Washington Street and Greenwood Streets to bypass the asphalt repair crews.
