MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Beginning between 8 and 9 a.m. today, M-DOT will close M-28 between Shingleton and Seney to allow the DNR to conduct back-burning operations from the highway.

This activity is expected to take several hours, but the exact duration of the closure is not yet known. At last report, the 1,500-acre wildfire in the Seney Wildlife Refuge had advanced to within three miles of the highway.

The official detour during the closure will be on M-94, US-2, and M-77. Several portable changeable message signs have been placed around the area to alert motorists of the wildfire and the closure. MDOT will announce when the highway has been reopened.
