A detour route schematic can be accessed via the City website (www.marquettemi.gov) through the Engineering Division page, under the Homestead Street Reconstruction Project link.

Jerry Mills to perform June 28 for Art Week

Marquette singer/songwriter Jerry Mills will play a special one-hour set on Thursday, June 28, from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Phil Niemisto Pocket Park on Washington Street. There, Mills will debut his brand new song, “Phil Niemisto’s Reflection,” a heartwarming tribute to our legendary downtown window washer and community icon, Phil Niemisto.

Mills is an internationally acclaimed professional speaker and concert performer.

“Because I travel far and wide to perform, I welcome the opportunity to share my songs in Marquette and I’m thrilled to be able to share this song at the site of Phil’s sculpture,” he writes. Mills is also the creative force behind the recent social media music video, “I Am a Super Yooper,” and will perform many songs inspired by and composed around the Marquette area. He will also perform from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Travel Marquette office at 117 W. Washington St. as part of the 4th Annual Art Stroll.
