MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Another big change was made to the former Shiras Steam Plant property: The plant’s Boiler #3 was pulled down at about 10:15 a.m. Thursday.

The Marquette Board of Light and Power (BLP) says this boiler unit was the largest one at the Shiras Steam Plant. It supplied more than 90% of the power to the Marquette community since the early 1980s.

The BLP says the demolition of the Shiras Steam Plant is still on track to be completed by year end.
