Two public walking events scheduled for Sep. 8

On Saturday, Sep. 8, there will be a pair of organized walking events in the City. No roads will be closed for these events, and participants are expected to follow the rules of the road, however the public is asked to be aware of and be considerate toward people crossing the streets.

One event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Marquette Commons and will conclude at approximately 11:30  a.m. From the Commons, at 112 S. Third Street, the walk will proceed west on the multi-use path to Seventh Street, then north on the multi-use path spur to Washington Street, then east on the Washington Street sidewalk to the multi-use path at Lakeshore Boulevard, looping around Mattson Lower Harbor Park Street before heading south on the multi-use path to Spring Street, and west on the multi-use path returning to the Marquette Commons.

The other event, beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until noon, will start at the NMU Jacobetti Complex, then cross Hawley Street at the multi-use path, before proceeding to Presque Isle and returning along the same route.

Because of the recent popularity of walking and skating on the ice in the lower harbor and the expected warmer weather this week, we'd like to remind residents that there is a strong potential for the harbor ice to shift and/or breakup without much notice.Due to warming weather and strong currents, Lake Superior ice conditions may deteriorate rapidly.Your safety is your responsibility. If you do go out on the ice, let someone know where you are going, do not go alone, and check current ice condition reports before you go.
