The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is spending $289,000 to repair shoreline slope between Lake Huron and the Huron Sunrise Trail along US-23, approximately three miles north of Rogers City.

The project includes placement of boulders along the lakeshore, backfilled with smaller stones.

The improvements will not only repair current damage to the shoreline, next to the nonmotorized trail, they will also prevent further erosion that could damage US-23.

Crews are expected to start the project on Monday, as long as the weather cooperates. The work won’t be completed until mid-March.

Motorists should expected delays as the project calls for shoulder closures and a single-lane closure with traffic regulators. In addition, a section of the Huron Sunrise Trail will be closed during construction.
