Press Release – Truck Route for Pioneer Ave, Rail St, CR-480

After much discussion and a public hearings the City of Negaunee has amended local ordinance 420.01c.  This ordinance pertains to designated truck routes through the City.  On December 27, 2017, trucks weighing over 10 tons (20,000 lbs.) will no longer be permitted along the previously designated truck route accessing CR-480 (Pioneer Ave and Rail St.).  This change will not affect the State-owned BR-28 which gives trucks access to the City of Ishpeming.

In summary, beginning December 27, 2017, the City of Negaunee will no longer provide a city truck route that will provides heavy truck traffic access to CR-480.  Drivers of vehicles weighing in excess of 20,000 lbs. will need to utilize M-35 to access CR-480, since CR-492 (East Maas St) is not a truck route.
