The street reconstruction project on 14th Avenue from 21st Street to West Drive will begin during the middle of April.  The 14th Avenue roadway will be closed to thru-traffic for the duration of the project and local access for residents will be maintained through the alleys.

A Public Information Meeting is scheduled on April 3, 2017 at 5:00 pm in City Hall Council Chambers to answer any questions or concerns. 


13th Street from 14th Avenue to 23rd Avenue will be closed to through traffic beginning Thursday morning, March 9th until end of the day on Friday, March 10th.  The street is being closed in order to install a new railroad crossing. The existing pavement at this crossing is very rough and is resulting in numerous delays for railroad traffic in addition to concerns expressed by local residents.

All vehicle traffic (including emergency vehicles) would be detoured using 14th Avenue and 23rd Avenue and the contractor will work with adjacent residents to get them access to their driveways.

The Menominee Fire Department will be conducting fire hydrant flushing to help maintain the water quality and to evaluate the amount of water available for fire fighting purposes. The flushing will be done from 38th Avenue, north to the City Limits. Flushing will begin Tuesday September 20th and continue through Friday October 7th. Residents may experience some discoloration of water and possibly lower than normal water pressure. These conditions do not represent a health hazard. However, customers are cautioned to determine if their water is clear before washing clothes (or any other process) as staining may occur. If you experience discolored water, run the cold water in you faucets for approximately 5-10 minutes.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
