State police say a stretch of roadway in Michigan's Upper Peninsula has been reopened to traffic after being shut down by snowdrifts of up to 8 feet and 40-mph wind gusts.
Police say M-28 between Marquette and Munising was reopened Thursday morning after being shut down by officials on Tuesday.
Police still are urging people to drive with caution, since road conditions are potentially dangerous in places.
A strong winter storm dumped more than 20 inches of snow this week in parts of northern Michigan, forcing officials to close many schools in the Upper Peninsula.
Snow also fell in southern Michigan, where numerous vehicle crashes were reported this week and some schools shut down.
