Demolition kicks off Lake State summer construction season

Posted: May 15th, 2013

GOODBYE MARQUETTE – Lake Superior State University's Marquette Hall, the oldest of three apartment halls built between 1967 and 1970 to house married LSSU students and their families, is no more as of May 14. The demolished hall's footprint will be filled in and planted with grass by the end of June, to become a study park that overlooks freighter traffic on the upper St. Mary's river. The remaining two halls — Moloney and Neveu — will continue to house student families and flat-mates. (LSSU/John Shibley)

21st-CENTURY ROOF – Contractors lay out roofing underlayment on top of the Townhouse residence halls at Lake Superior State University on May 7. The roofing project kicks off a summer construction season at Lake State that sees new carpeting and roof work for the Townhouses and Osborn Hall, as well demolition of Marquette Hall. New shingles should carry the Townhouses well into the 2040s, if need be. LSSU's Townhouses are 30 duplex units that overlook approaches to the world-famous Soo Locks and the International Bridge that connects to Ontario, Canada. (LSSU/John Shibley)
