MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Construction begins on two separate roads in Marquette Monday morning.

Beginning at 7 a.m. on April 15, Third Street between Baraga Avenue and Rock Street will be closed to through traffic for Phase 1 reconstruction work.

Also at 7 a.m. Monday, Altamont Street between McMillan Street and Blemhuber Avenue will be closed to through traffic for Phase 1 reconstruction work.

This is the first phase of two phases for each project and work is expected to last four weeks for both.

The Third Street work will detour traffic to Baraga Avenue, Fourth Street and Rock Street.

The Altamont Street work will detour traffic to Fisher Street, Champion Street and Blemhuber Avenue.

The public is advised to use caution when traveling through both areas and to be alert for construction, detour and advisory signing.
