The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is partnering with the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) on a $564,000 project to reconstruct the M-28/Acre Trail Road intersection in Chocolay Township, Marquette County.
Acre Trail Road is the entrance to the Marquette Ojibway Casino, which is undergoing a major expansion, including the addition of a new 1,200-seat event and entertainment venue and expanded gaming area. A new hotel is also planned in the future.

A Transportation Economic Development Fund (TEDF) Category A grant was secured to pay for 60 percent of the project with the remaining matching funds being contributed by MDOT and the KBIC. Left- and right-turn lanes will be added on M-28 to support the additional traffic and turning movements generated by the expansion. The project also includes concrete curb and gutter, new signs, pavement markings, and centerline rumble strips.

The work will require shoulder closures and single-lane closures. One alternating lane will be open via traffic regulators.
This project will increase safety and provide for the smooth flow of traffic for motorists on M-28 as well as those turning at Acre Trail Road.
