Pier Placemaking Project in Houghton to be completed this summer

The City of Houghton is working with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation on the long-awaited Pier Placemaking Project. MJO Contracting of Hancock has been working diligently on the project with an anticipated ending date sometime this summer. Between the Portage Lake District Library (pictured) and the Michigan Tech Lakeshore Center, the Pier will create a year-round gathering space along the waterfront in the middle of downtown Houghton.

Thanks to the MEDC and City Manager Eric Waara for moving the project forward. Learn more about the project here.
