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.

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.

Have you ever wondered why the lakeshore in Marquette's Lower Harbor is so open to public use today compared to years past? Brownfield projects, in coordination with the City of Marquette, the State of Michigan and private developers, have had a transformative effect on lakeshore access and recreation opportunities.
