Michigan State Police Close UP Road After Cars Go Into Ditch

MUNISING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State Police closed a portion of an Upper Peninsula highway on Sunday morning after lake-effect snow and high winds caused slippery pavement and whiteout conditions, leaving numerous vehicles in a ditch.

M-28 was closed between Marquette County and the Munising city limits, police said.

The National Weather Service posted an advisory discouraging motorists from traveling in Alger, Luce and northern Schoolcraft counties. It predicted additional snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.6 centimeters).
