MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News)The Marquette City Commission is holding a special meeting tomorrow morning to discuss impacts from the decision to not construct a proposed county road in western Marquette County.

Commissioners and city staff will explore options now that the plug was pulled on the plan to build County Road 595. Construction of the road was going to be funded by Rio Tinto for use by their trucks to haul materials and ore to and from the Kennecott Eagle Mine in northern Marquette County to a processing facility in Humboldt Township.

The trucks will now pass through Marquette on their daily routes and the Commission is meeting to see what can be done to alleviate the road congestion and maintenance concerns created by the increased truck traffic.

The meeting will be held at 8:00 a.m. at the Commission Chambers at City Hall in Marquette.
