MARINETTE — Marinette’s city engineer agreed to patch the holes on Madison Avenue between Hall Avenue and Lewis Street at a council meeting last Tuesday.

The temporary fix comes ahead of the $2.6 million Department of Transportation (DOT) project, secured by a grant, that will restore the stretch of road in 2026, said Brian Miller, city engineer. After completing the paperwork, the DOT will bid out the project in 2024. The project’s cost will be split 80/20 between the state and the city, with 80% being covered by the state.
