The remainder of the reconstruction of 13th Street in Menominee will be completed next year. Tuesday, the Public Safety/Public Works Committee approved a recommendation from the engineering department to hire GEI as the consultant for both design engineering and construction engineering for the work on 13th Street from 34th to 38th Avenue. The project includes replacing the existing curb and gutter and sidewalk on the west side of the street, as well as creating a full bike lane in each direction. City Manager Tony Graff says the work will start in the late spring or early summer of 2019 and will take around four months to complete. The cost of the project is estimated to be around $700-thousand. A grant from the Michigan Department of Transportation will cover $375-thousand of that work.
