LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- An iconic stretch of highway in northern Michigan is getting more than a million dollars worth of repairs starting Monday.

The Michigan Department of Transportation will invest $1.5 million to replace and seal concrete joints and make other pavement repairs on 8.7 miles of M-22.

The exact location starts south of East Lakeview Hills Road to north 4th Street in Suttons Bay.

MDOT says this road work will require 24-hour lane closures under flag control, with up to two lane closures at a time.

Some night work is possible.

MDOT says this project will maintain a safe driving surface on this section of M-22.

The project starts Monday, Sept. 18 and is expected to be completed by Friday, Nov. 3.
