Route through Michican's Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore shut down

A $5.1 million construction project that will upgrade about 10 miles of Alger County Highway 58 has begun north of the Kingston Plains.

By Wednesday, the project will be in full swing with the primary access route to and through Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore shut down over the entire construction zone until next year.

The entire H-58 construction closure will begin with the road closed to through traffic from the Little Beaver Lake Campground Road to the Kingston Lake Campground.

The closure will remain in effect until next August.

Little Beaver Lake Campground will remain open and can be accessed from the west along H-58. The road closure begins just beyond the campground road.

Michigan Department of Natural Resources state forest campgrounds at north and south Gemini lakes, Ross, Canoe and Cusino lakes will remain accessible via a detour off H-58 from the west at Melstrand.

An information sign and handouts is posted along H-58 at Melstrand to aid motorists entering the area.

For more information on the construction, contact the Alger County Road Commission at 387-2042, or visit the agency's Web site at
