Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Lakeshore Boulevard between Wright Street and Hawley Street in the City of Marquette will remain closed until further notice.

The road was closed during a November 11th storm, which sent large waves and pieces of the shoreline rock barrier into the roadway.

That closure was the third in nine weeks.

The City has determined the shoreline has been seriously degraded and compromised, and the road sub-surface and near-road shoreline has been seriously weakened and damaged.

Ongoing winter weather conditions are expected to cause additional damage and impacts which will diminish the ability of the remaining barrier to protect the road.

The City has reached out to Federal, State, and local partners seeking emergency support, and is working towards prompt resolution.
