About M-28 (Michigan highway) in brief
M-28 is an east–west state trunkline highway that traverses nearly all of the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan. M-28 forms the northern half of a pair of primary trunklines linking the Upper peninsula from end to end; US 2 is the southern partner. The entire route is part of the National Highway System, and three sections of the trunkline arepart of the Lake Superior Circle Tour. The 290. 373-mile highway comprises mostly two lanes, undivided except for sections that are concurrent with US 41 near Marquette. It is a major access route for traffic from Michigan and Canada along the southern shore of Lake Superior. The highway is an original trunkline designation, dating to the 1919 formation of the state’s trunkline system. It was expanded eastward to the Sault Ste. Marie area in the late 1920s. The western end has been expanded twice to different locations on the Wisconsin state line, with one still extant. The trunkline runs through heavily forested areas of southern Houghton and Baraga counties. It also crosses the Ottawa National Forest and both units of the Hiawatha National Forest. In Baraga and Marquette counties, US 41M- 28 passes through hilly terrain before entering the urban areas of Ishpeming, Negaunee and Marquettes. The road is listed with only an average annual daily traffic of 1,425 vehicles on a section of highway between Bergland and the US 45 intersection in Bruce Crossing.
The Marquette Bypass portion of M- 28 is a four-lane expressway, and segments of the highway in Marquette County have four lanes. M 28 also carries two memorial highway designations along its route. In Chocolay Township, the highway becomes the J. J. Jacobetti Memorial Highway to honor the longest-serving Michigan member of the Michigan Legislature, Jacobetti, who was killed in a car accident in 1958. The roadway is listed as part of a National Highway system route. The first section of M 27 is part the Lake Superior Circle Tour, from the western terminus to the eastern junction with M-64 in Bergland, where the Circle Tour turns north along M- 64, leaving M-27. The second section is a part the Circle Tour from the western terminus to this point, but it becomes the \”Veterans Memorial Highway from this point to the western point, M-29. The third section is the J J. Jacobelli Memorial Highway, serving the city of Ish peming, where it is named in honor of Jacobetti’s son, J.J., who died in the line of duty in the 1950s. In the west, M 29 is a two-lane highway that crosses into southwestern Ontonagon County and the Eastern Time Zone, running concurrently with M-64. In Wakefield, it passes Sunday Lake heading out of town, and the highway passes the Seney Stretch, Seney National Wildlife Refuge and several historic bridges.
