Construction Being Done at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

August 23, 2012

MUNISING, MI – The Federal Highway Administration is funding pavement preservation work on all paved roads and parking areas at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

“Crack sealing and patch repairs will be the first treatment, followed by micro paving and chip sealing of parking lots and roads,” according to Chris Case, Lakeshore Facility Manager. “Work will be under traffic to minimize the impact to travelers, and delays could be encountered as the work progresses.”

The work began on August 20 and is expected to be complete by early October. Most of the work is scheduled after Labor Day, Case added.

The areas involved in the work are Sand Point Road, Munising Falls parking area, Miners Castle Road and parking area, Miners Beach Road hill, Log Slide Road and parking area, Sable Falls road and parking area, and the Grand Sable Visitor Center parking areas.
