BANGOR — More roadwork is slated to take place this spring and summer on Michigan 43 Highway in Van Buren County.
The latest project will entail the resurfacing of 13.5 miles of M-43 from Bangor to the Waverly Township line, according to a news release from the Michigan Department of Transportation. The $2.3 million project includes curb and gutters, sidewalk ramps and pavement markings.
Construction is expected to begin Monday and be completed by Friday, June 28. While construction is going on one lane of the highway will remain open in each direction.
The newest road project comes on the heels of one currently underway on M-43 near South Haven.
Workers are now improving a 0.3-mile portion of the highway between County Road 384 at the roundabout and 69th Street. In addition to repaving the roadway, MDOT also plans to make the 16th Avenue intersection safer by adding a paved shoulder to allow traffic to pass vehicles turning left onto 16th Avenue from M-43.
The project should be wrapped up by June 15, according to MDOT.
