Presque Isle Ave. work continues

MARQUETTE — The third phase of the reconstruction of Presque Isle Avenue in Marquette will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday. The third phase will include the east half of the street from Center Street to a point north of Fair Avenue. The west half will be open to two-way traffic. This is the third of four phases with this phase expected to last three weeks.

The Presque Isle Avenue work will detour truck traffic from Presque Isle Avenue to Fair Avenue, Lakeshore Boulevard, Wright Street and back onto Presque Isle Avenue. This detour route is only for truck traffic and will remain this way for the duration of the project. Local truck deliveries for businesses along Presque Isle Avenue from Wright Street to Fair Avenue will have access to this area. Businesses in this area are open and patrons will have access to them.

Traffic will experience lane shifts at each end of this phase. The public is advised to use caution when traveling through this area and to be alert for construction, detour and advisory signing.
