Boyne City Street closures necessary for city facilities construction

Portions of North Lake Street in Boyne City between State and Vogel Streets will be closed to thru traffic beginning Tuesday Oct. 11 at about 8 a.m. and continuing through Friday Oct. 14.

A detour route is being established using North Park Street.

All local businesses along this portion of North Lake Street including Roberts Restaurant, 4Front Credit Union, Honeywell, MSU Extension/4H, the temporary Boyne City City Hall, Police Department and Fire Department will remain open during construction although access may be limited to one direction.

On Tuesday and Wednesday only the portion of North Lake Street between North and Vogel Streets will be closed to thru traffic.

After work is completed in that area, the section of North Lake Street closed to thru traffic will be extended one block south to State Street.

The road is expected to be fully reopened to traffic by Friday Oct. 14.

Repaving of the areas, including North Street, will take place by November 15th.

The road is being closed to thru traffic to allow the scheduled installation of utility services for the voter approved City Facilities building now under construction.

The new building is progressing well and is expected to be completed and occupied in July 2017.

Once the new building is occupied the remaining old building currently housing the Boyne City Fire and Police Departments will be demolished.
