MARQUETTE — Construction at Sugarloaf Mountain has moved into its next phase.

A deceleration lane and by–pass lane is now being constructed. For the next two weeks, construction will be conducted near the travel lanes.

County officials are urging motorists to reduce speed and be alert when moving through the area.

The new parking lot at Sugarloaf Mountain is expected to be open in September.

Improvements to the existing lot will be made after the new parking lot is complete.
