The Federal Highway Administration is funding pavement preservation work on all paved roads and parking areas at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The work began on August 20 and is expected to be complete by early October.  

"Crack sealing and patch repairs will be the first treatment, followed by micro paving and chip sealing of parking lots and roads," according to Chris Case, Lakeshore Facility Manager. "Work will be under traffic to minimize the impact to travelers, and delays could be encountered as the work progresses." Most of the work is scheduled after Labor Day, Case added.
