KALKASKA — A state highway project will arrive next week in Kalkaska.

The Michigan Department of Transportation will resurface less than a half-mile of M-72 through town from Birch Street to east of Walnut Street. The more than $500,000 in road work also includes shoulder upgrades and creation of a center turn lane.

Work is scheduled to begin Tuesday and the project’s targeted completion date is in mid-July.
