North Front Street to Undergo Streetscape Improvements

Posted on August 30, 2017

The 100 and 200 blocks of North Front Street will be undergoing streetscape improvements beginning Tuesday, September 5, 2017. Similar to last summer’s South Front Street sidewalk improvements, the project includes removal of the brick pavers, which will be replaced with a combination of plain and stamped colored concrete, repair and replacement of deteriorated curbing, addition of street trees, and installation of electrical outlets in the tree guards. Traffic shifts will be necessary to accommodate the project; however, access to North Front Street businesses will remain open during the project duration. Premeau Construction Company is the contractor for the $200,000 project, which is funded by the Marquette Downtown Development Authority. The project is expected to be completed by the end of October. Additional details will be shared as they become available.
