McClellan Avenue work to begin

MARQUETTE — Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, Oberstar Inc. will be starting the widening of McClellan Avenue from U.S. 41 to Washington Street in Marquette. This project is the final phase of the Marquette Hospital Transportation Improvements Project. The widening of McClellan will provide a designated left-turn lane between Washington Street and to a point south of the Public Service Garage entrance. In addition, a permanent island will be constructed on Baraga Avenue east of the McClellan Avenue intersection to prohibit any left-hand turns onto McClellan Avenue.

This work will be completed by use of lane closures, traffic lane shifts and flag control, and will influence traffic traveling on U.S. 41, McClellan Avenue north and south of Washington Street, McClellan Avenue north and south of U.S. 41, Washington Street east and west of McClellan Avenue, and Baraga Avenue east and west of McClellan Avenue. The work is expected to last till the end of September.
