US-2 Closing This Evening Due To Weather:
MDOT will be closing Highway US-2 between St. Ignace and the Intersection of Worth Road (just east of Epoufette) beginning at 7:00 pm tonight until sometime in the early morning hours tomorrow. This is being done to provide for the safety of motorists.
The detour route of north to I-75 to M-123 then west on Worth Road back to US-2 will be established for motorists who need to travel to the western parts of the UP.
The dunes area on US-2 is subject to low/poor visibility and with the current weather conditions and expected snowfall tonight, it was decided to prevent hazards accordingly. MDOT will be working through the night to maintain clearance of snow and drifting in the area so that this segment of US-2 can opened at the earliest possible time.
Contact the Michigan State Police or the Michigan Department of Transportation for further information and updates:
