Downtown improvement project is underway

A two month project is underway in Marquette – and will close a busy downtown block to motorists.

It was a windy morning for the construction crews working on the block of Washington Street between Front Street and Lakeshore Boulevard  today.

The project below ground involves replacing original water and sewer lines and other utilities.  Above ground, the work includes making the road wider and returning on-street parking to parallel, instead of diagonal spaces.
