Roads closed due to construction

MARQUETTE — Beginning at 7 a.m. today, Wright Street between Sugarloaf Avenue and Neidhart Avenue and Tracy Avenue from Norwood Street to Wright Street will be closed to through traffic for Phase 1 reconstruction work.

This is the first phase of eight phases. This phase is expected to last one week.

This Wright Street work will detour traffic to Sugarloaf Avenue, Hawley Street, and Presque Isle Avenue. The Tracy Avenue work will detour traffic to Center Street, Van Evera Avenue, Wright Street, Neidhart Avenue, Clark Street, and Sugarloaf Avenue. Businesses in this area are open and patrons can access them by way of Sugarloaf Avenue or Wright Street, depending on the direction of travel. The public is advised to use caution when traveling through this area and to be alert for construction, detour and advisory signing.
