Lamoreaux Ave Closing Update

It is expected that Lamoreaux Ave will continue to be closed throughout the week ending September 1, 2012.  Work continues on the Mill Creek Sewer Trunk across the street and underneath the railroad tracks.

Marquette Rail Road is also doing some temporary fixes to the tracks across Lamoreaux and plan to do extensive repairs in 2013.
