Gibbs City Road

IRON RIVER TOWNSHIP, MI--   One person was airlifted to a Wisconsin hospital, following a car crash in Iron River Township.

Monday around 1 p.m. the Iron County Sheriff’s Office was called to US-2 near the intersection of Gibbs City Road. Deputies say a westbound Ford Fusion driven by a Watersmeet woman was struck by a pickup truck driven by an Iron River man exiting his driveway.

The “jaws of life” were needed to extract the woman from her vehicle. She was taken to Aspirus Hospital in Iron River, then transported to Aspirus Wausau in Wisconsin.

IRON RIVER, MI (AP)--   Work starts next week on an effort to rebuild more than two miles of non-motorized pathway along US-2 in the Upper Peninsula.  

The Michigan Department of Transportation says the work is scheduled to begin Monday in Iron County from Gibbs City Road to Ninth Avenue in Iron River.

Lane closures are expected as work is taking place. Under plans for the project, construction is scheduled to be completed by July 1.
