Homestead Street work starts soon

MARQUETTE — Beginning Thursday, Homestead Street in Marquette between Grove Street to a point midway between the two driveways that service the Norlite Nursing Center will experience intermittent street closures due to utility work.

When the street is closed, the detour will direct traffic for those traveling to Wilson Street by means of Grove Street, Forest Park Drive and onto Wilson Street. Motorists that require access to the Norlite Nursing Center can use the same detour route to get to Homestead Street. The public is advised to use caution when traveling through this area and to be alert for construction, detour and advisory signs.

A detour route schematic can be accessed at the Marquette Engineering Division website under the Homestead Street Reconstruction Project link at

Smith Construction Company is the general contractor for this project.
