Lakeshore Boulevard relocation project begins

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, April 22, Wright Street from Presque Isle Avenue to Lakeshore Boulevard will be closed to through traffic. In addition, Pine Street from Fair Avenue to Lakeshore Boulevard and Lakeshore Boulevard from Fair Avenue to Wright Street will be closed to through traffic.

This is the beginning of phase one of a three-phase project that will relocate Lakeshore Boulevard between Pine Street and a point north of Hawley Street. This first phase will include roadway, multi- use pathway, and utility work from Pine Street to a point north of a new roundabout at Lakeshore Boulevard and Wright Street and along the north side of Wright Street, from the old railroad grade east of Presque Isle Avenue to the new roundabout. This phase is anticipated to be completed in the middle of July. Work may also start on the second phase between Wright and Hawley Streets during this time.

This work will require traffic to be detoured for Lakeshore Boulevard by means of Fair Avenue, Presque Isle Avenue, and Hawley Street. The multi-use pathway will remain closed between Pine Street and Hawley Street during the entirety of this project. The public is advised to not to travel through the construction limits area and to be alert for construction, detour and advisory signing.

A phasing schematic can be accessed at the City of Marquette Engineering Division web site under the Lakeshore Boulevard Phase 1 Relocation Project link here.

Smith Construction Company is the general contractor for this project. The City of Marquette asks you for your patience during the construction process.
