Welcome to Negaunee Township



North Road and South Basin will see driveway culvert replacement and related ditching.  

Kivela, Heritage, and East Wilderness will see driveway culverts and related ditching.  

Driveways will also be removed at the cuts in preparation for crushing, shaping, and paving.  

Bacco Construction will be coming on board late into next week.  

The telephone wire that was struck on South Basin last Friday was NOT MARKED by the communications company when the Miss Dig request was turned in. Until a local person pushed the issue with AT&T, they were going to wait until Monday to repair it. The strike was NOT the fault of the digging contractor and we regret that they were incorrectly vilified for the incident. 

Please be cautious on the roads as things are going to get busy!

Located in Marquette County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Negaunee Township was established on February 14, 1859. 


The Townhip was originally made up of the territory which had been Teal Lake Township, with various sections of the western part subsequently being detached in the formation of Ishpeming and Tilden Townships

The first settlements in the Township were made under the sponsorship of the Jackson Iron Company, as iron ore was discovered in the area by William A. Burt on September 19, 1844. 

Today Negaunee Township is home to both residents and commercial businesses.  The scenic setting is traversed by the Iron Ore Heritage Trail, a 48-mile, multi-use, year round trail that connects communities and people to the region’s historic sites and human stories.  In addition, trails and water access throughout the Township offer year round recreation possibilities.
