Motorists in Gogebic County along US-2 near Bessemer should expect construction-related delays beginning Thursday and continuing through Tuesday, June 18, as Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT)-contracted crews will be completing a $320,000 project to resurface about 1.3 miles of US-2 in Bessemer, Gogebic County. 

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.
