MARQUETTE, MI— The City of Marquette will start work on a coastal restoration project near the intersection of Lakeshore Boulevard and Pine Street Wednesday morning.

The project includes removal of portions of the abandoned Lakeshore Boulevard roadway, dune restoration, coastal wetland construction, enhanced public beach access, and a variety of native coastal plantings. The project is expected to be completed by mid-June.

The roadways and multi-use path located near the project will remain open throughout the duration of the project, with the exception of short-term disruptions to load and unload materials and equipment.
