Construction starts May 3 at NMC’s Great Lakes Campus, and continues around Main Campus

TRAVERSE CITY — Starting Monday, May 3, construction will begin at the main entrance of NMC’s Great Lakes Campus, extending south toward E. Front St and impeding access to the circle drive and main walkway into the building. To avoid the construction, park immediately west or east of the building and use the walkway alongside Grand Traverse Bay that leads to the waterfront courtyard.

The Grand Traverse County Health Department (GTCHD) is alerting those coming to the Hagerty Center for a COVID-19 vaccination that the construction is expected to last for the duration of the clinic, and that the west parking lot offers handicap parking for those who are mobility restricted. If you have a previously scheduled appointment or are planning on attending a walk-in clinic at the Hagerty Center and have mobility restrictions, please email for accommodations.

Construction is also ongoing on and around NMC’s Main Campus as part of the City of Traverse City's Safe Routes to School project. New sidewalks are being built on the following street segments:

  • North side of Eastern Ave. between Milliken Dr. and Eastwood Ave.
  • North side of College Drive between E. Front St. and the west side of NMC’s Cherry parking lot.
  • East side of Fair St. between E. Eighth St. and E. Front St. including sidewalk ramp construction/replacement at the Fair St. and Titus Ave. intersection.

That work is expected to be substantially complete by June 4. Street segments will remain open to traffic with shoulder closures and/or traffic regulators, and College Drive will be reduced to one lane during the day, so expect some delays.
