About the Construction Project
The summer-long construction project began May 2, and will continue into the fall.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is reconstructing about a mile of US-41 in Hancock from the Portage Lake Lift Bridge to Lincoln Drive. Work includes removing and replacing the existing roadway, with drainage improvements. Streetscape work includes decorative street lighting, curb bump-outs and landscape plantings. The City of Hancock will be performing water main and sanitary sewer improvements in addition to MDOT’s project.
Construction is currently underway on the 200 block of Quincy Street and will be starting shortly on the 300 block.
