After paving the approaches to the bridge deck, a bump has formed on the westerly approach of the County Road 480 bridge over the LS&I Railroad.  Motorists should use caution while driving over this bridge.  The road commission is aware of this issue and the road will be repaired by the contractor this summer when the asphalt plant is reopened for the season.


 The Marquette County Road Commission maintains 284.47 miles of primary roads and 988.99 miles of local roads. In addition, we maintain 169.42 miles (444 lane miles) of state trunkline under contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation.  We are also responsible for the maintenance of 93 bridges.
