Police advise extra caution in construction zones

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Major Construction projects are already underway in the city of Marquette. Police are advising motorists to use extra caution this summer.

Roundabouts are being built at the intersections of Grove Street and U.S. 41, Baraga Avenue and the new hospital access drive, and U.S. 41 and the new hospital access drive.

Other projects are planned for later in the summer.

Police are using this as a chance to remind drivers to use extra caution in those areas.

“This is a good time to remind motorists to take extra travel time if needed to get to your destination,” said Captain Mile Laurila of the Marquette City Police. “Drive slow and give those workers the courtesy of being able to do their jobs safely, and you need to proceed slowly in those construction sites.”

Work on the roundabouts is expected to take the whole summer, with estimated completion by November.
