Lane closures planned during Lakeshore Boulevard project

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 25, a portion of Hawley Street and Lakeshore Boulevard, to the west and to the north of the Hawley and Lakeshore intersection, will be restricted to a single lane of travel to allow for construction work on the Lakeshore Boulevard relocation project. Temporary traffic signals will be utilized for traffic control. Pedestrians and bikers traveling through the site will be detoured along the road shoulder.
This single lane closure is expected to last three weeks. This work is part of the third and final phase of the roadway relocation portion of this project. The public is advised to be alert for construction, detour, and advisory signing.
Smith Construction Company is the general contractor for this project.
The City of Marquette asks you for your patience during the construction process.

Call for submissions: “Words to Live and Bike By” mural project

The Marquette Public Art Commission (MPAC) is inviting artists, community members, and organizations to apply to design and paint text-inspired, site-specific artworks on the surface of the Holly Greer Bike Path in Marquette.
The “Words to Live and Bike By” project involves five words painted at five different locations along the bike path. The selected words will be stenciled on the bike path prior to painters’ arrival on-site. Completed murals will be 6ft. in height and between 11 ft. and 25 ft. in length, depending on word length.

Those interested can apply by completing the application(s) found online here. Included on each application is a stencil/outline of each word, off of which applicants can make their proposed design and attach at the end of the form. Proposed designs should reflect a unique and imaginative interpretation relating the given word to the location. Colored pencil or fine tip markers are recommended for design drafts, though digital designs will also be accepted.

Locations and words include:

  • Founder’s Landing; “REMEMBER”
  • Marquette Commons; “GRATITUDE”
  • Mattson Lower Harbor Park; “DREAM”
  • Between Picnic Rocks & McCarty’s Cove; “RESPECT”
  • Clark Lambros Park; “HOPE”

Applicants are limited to one design submission per word, though may submit for multiple words and locations if desired. The deadline for submissions is 5:00pm on September 1, 2020. Winners will be notified on September 10, 2020, with painting to occur between September 14-25, 2020.
Once begun, the painting of each mural must be completed within a 12-hour timeframe to limit disruption of bike path traffic. MPAC will provide core materials for the project, including paint, brushes, containers, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, drop cloths, and tape. Painters will be responsible for practicing COVID safety procedures by wearing masks and exercising social distancing.
