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.
