MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) - Marquette County Road Commission Engineer-Manager Jim Iwanicki joined the SUNNY Morning Show to discuss a public meeting being held by the Environmental Protection Agency tonight in Marquette on the proposed construction of a new county road in Western Marquette County.
The session will focus on a proposal by the Marquette County Road Commission to build County Road 5-95, a new 21.4 mile primary county road, running north-south between U.S. Highway 41 and County Road Triple A. The new road would run through Champion, Ely, Humboldt, and Michigamme townships.
Iwanicki says the Road Commission is in favor of the construction of the roadway for a multitude of reasons including increasing commerce and public safety in the area.
The meeting and subsequent hearing will take place at the Don H. Bottum University Center at Northern Michigan University. An informational session will begin at 6 p.m. and public comment will begin at 7 p.m.
