Good news for travelers in the eastern Upper Peninsula – the detour of I-75 officially ends Wednesday.
The freeway had been detoured for most of the summer, to allow for culvert replacements and bridge repairs over the Pine River. Northbound lanes were reopened last month.
Closure in red, detour in green (Jefferson Road east, Northland Drive north, 8 Mile Road west) and alternate route in blue (M-82 west, M-37 north and M-20 east).
