MDOT to Close Upper Peninsula Roadside Parks Next Thursday

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula roadside parks are set to close for the year, starting next week. The Michigan Department of Transportation operates 32 roadside parks in the Upper Peninsula, six are located in the Keweenaw Peninsula. In order, from south to north in the Keweenaw, parks are located at; Baraga Cliff, the Keweenaw Scenic Turnout, near the Memorial Airport, and Great Sand Bay, Esrey, and Hebard roadside parks in Keweenaw County. The roadside park southbound on I-75, just north of St Ignance, will be the last roadside park to close in the Upper Peninsula, at the end of November. This rest area stays open a little longer for visitors, due to its easy access and popular view of the Mackinaw Bridge. All other roadside parks in the Upper Peninsula will close next Thursday October 27th.
