Hancock Praises Road Workers For Job Well Done

The reconstruction of US-41 in Hancock is complete and the route has been officially reopened. Construction crews wrapped up the $2 million portion of the project on Saturday night, leaving motorists and residents to celebrate a job well done.

The reopening also marks the end of a larger-scale renovation project to Hancock’s downtown business district, which has been under construction since early 2016.

Hancock City Manager Glenn Anderson said the project was a great investment and the community is pleased with the results.

“We’re obviously glad it’s done. It’s been a year and a half of construction season, all of last year and then half of this year’s construction season,” said Anderson. “It was a significant investment, over $7 million dollars, of course, all new sidewalks, curbs, water sewer, storm sewer. The sidewalks are all ADA compliant sidewalks for the first time in the history of the city.”

The Michigan Department of Transportation and Hebert Construction supported the completion of the project.
