Roscommon Co. Road Work Affects M-18, M-55

Two road construction projects are starting in Roscommon County, and they could affect your morning commutes.

One is on M-18 over Backus Creek.

According to MDOT, that road will be shut down completely beginning Sept. 3 for a culvert replacement.

The project is expected to last until Oct. 11.

Roscommon 911 says detours will be posted.

The second project will affect traffic on M-55 in Prudenville from Kelly Street to Old 55, near I-75.

Crews will be resurfacing, which will cause single-lane closures.

That project will also begin Sept. 3, and is also expected to wrap up on Oct. 11.

Roscommon 911 says the M-18 construction could cause significant issues for anyone traveling through the area.
