It’s that Season! (Construction Season)


In addition to rolled-down windows, short-sleeves, and an end to Closed for the Season signs, summer in the UP means road construction. This year it’s the bridge, but next year will be very interesting: downtown Hancock will get a complete rebuild, from the bridge all the way through downtown.

This image shows something unique: Hancock’s Quincy Street with cars pointing—as we would say today—the wrong way. What changes have happened to transportation up here since you were a student? Did anything surprise you the last time you were in town?
