M-50 traffic detoured for rail crossing repairs


DUNDEE, Mich. -- Railroad crossing repairs will close M-50 just east of Dundee for about 3 1/2 days, starting late today, the Michigan Department of Transportation announced.

The highway will close at 11 p.m. while the crossing is resurfaced, MDOT said. Traffic will be detoured via U.S. 23, Ida West Road, and Lewis Avenue.

M-50 is expected to reopen by 3 p.m. Tuesday, but the schedule is weather dependent, officials said.
