Project Details

The project resulted in two side-by-side floating docks attached to tribal property adjacent to a LTBB-owned fish market in Mackinaw City. One side is a 16-feet wide working tribal commercial fishing dock capable of mooring three 60-foot vessels and a research or patrol vessel. The other is an 8-foot wide public recreation fishing dock. The two sides are separated by a 3-foot tall center railing equipped with downward facing lighting fixtures. The public side has two 8-foot fishing bump outs and is handicap accessible (the last bump out has a 10-foot section of low railing to allow wheelchair-bound anglers access over the rail). The dock is a total of 295 feet in length. There are four parking spaces along the shore-side terminus of the dock and ample parking within walking distance.
