Marshall County Metronet Project to Begin Next Week

 The Marshall County Commissioners received an update on the Metronet project during their meeting Monday morning from USI representative Bart Trester.

“The city portion – they’re not going to start until June,” said Trester. The county portion – they’re doing layout work this week and construction will begin next week.”

USI was awarded the contract for the county portion which includes the installment of conduit for the broadband cables.

County Attorney Jim Clevenger stated that the agreement with St. Joseph County was approved at the end of April and the City of Plymouth has yet to approve the interlocal agreement.

The county portion of the project will start in the middle between Marshall County and St. Joseph County as that portion is ready to move forward.
