UPDATE ON HOSPITAL TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS

The Marquette Hospital Transportation Improvements Project is currently being advertised for
bids for reconstruction of the US-41 corridor and adjacent local streets upgrades. Bids for this
project are due on March 24. Bids will be reviewed for bidding requirements and accuracy.
It is anticipated that the City Commission at the April 10 regular meeting will approve the
contractor for this project as recommended by the City Manager and staff.
The project is anticipated to start in late April. The start will be based on the City receiving all
the documents required from the contractor to begin construction, as well as securing purchase
agreements for property acquisition. The project will be phased to minimize disruptions to the
public.
Weekly updates will be provided by the City on the project such as; progress, traffic changes/
detours, and other areas of interest on the website at www.mqtcty.org.
