MUSKEGON, MI – A contractor was picked this week to help manage pre-construction work on Muskegon’s proposed 45,000-square-foot convention center.

Clark Construction Company, a Lansing-based contractor, will be paid $38,355 for pre-construction on the proposed $17 million convention center, which will sit on what is now Fourth Street between West Western Avenue and Shoreline Drive. The building will be flanked on either side by the L.C. Walker Arena and the downtown Holiday Inn, which will soon be rebranded as a Delta by Marriott.
