Traffic alert

Repairs are under way this morning at a damaged traffic signal at the intersection of US-41 and Lakeshore Drive in Ishpeming.

Lane closures are in place at the intersection to reduce eastbound and westbound traffic on US-41 to one lane in each direction. Traffic will be under flag control and motorists should be prepared to stop.

Motorists are urged to use extreme caution when driving through the intersection.

It is hoped that repairs can be completed by this evening.

The signal was damaged in a traffic incident Thursday afternoon.
