Homestead Street Upgrade Work

Beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 9, 2018 Homestead Street between Grove Street to a point midway between the two driveways that service the Norlite Nursing Center will experience intermittent street closures due to utility work.

When the street is closed the detour will direct traffic for those traveling to Wilson Street by means of Grove Street, Forest Park Drive, and onto Wilson Street. Traffic that require access to the Norlite Nursing Center can use the same detour route to get to Homestead Street. The public is advised to use caution when traveling through this area and to be alert for construction, detour and advisory signing.

A detour route schematic can be accessed at the City of Marquette Engineering Division web site under the Homestead Street Reconstruction Project link at www.mqtcty.org.

Smith Construction Company is the general contractor for this project.

The City of Marquette asks you for your patience during the construction process.

This work will be completed by use of lane closures, traffic lane shifts, and flag control and will influence traffic traveling on U.S. 41, McClellan Avenue north and south of Washington Street, McClellan Avenue north and south of U.S. 41, Washington Street east and west of McClellan Avenue, and Baraga Avenue east and west of McClellan Avenue. The public is urged to use extreme caution and follow all warning signs, lane shifts, detour routes, and other traffic control measures. The work is expected to last till the end of September.

ISLAND NO PARKING SIGNS

Recently, "No Parking at any time" signs have been installed on Peter White Drive in the areas of Black Rocks and Sunset Point on the island. Problems with vehicles parked on the roadway in that area have made it difficult for vehicles to pass through and for emergency vehicles to respond to incidents on the island. Motorists are reminded that parking on the roadway of Peter White Drive is prohibited and violations of this can include a parking citation, Impeding Traffic citation, and having their vehicle towed.
