Menominee's 14th Avenue Reconstruction Project Meeting.

Menominee’s 14th Avenue Reconstruction project will begin earlier than expected

 

At last night’s 14th avenue reconstruction information meeting. Menominee City Engineer, Valerie Melon updated residents on how the reconstruction process will take place. First by letting them know that the original May 1st start date will begin with a tentative April 15th start date, which is two-weeks earlier than anticipated. Melon says if you live on the 23-hundred block it will become difficult to get through and you will need to utilize the alley way. Melon says you will see a gravel street for the majority of the project.
Melon says that the 24-hundred block will receive new storm sewer where they never had storm sewer before, so you’ll see sewer work happening on both sides of the street early on in the project. There will NOT be a driving detour for motorists but the City of Menominee will post updates for residents on their website and other media outlets.
