Project Details

This project provided barrier-free access to excellent recreational fishing through the construction of a walkway and related facilities to the south pier of Portage Lake on Lake Michigan, a pier maintained by the U.S. Corps of Engineers. As a result of the GLFT-funded project, there is now a 8-foot-by-656-foot barrier-free fishing access/walkway made of reinforced concrete at the site, with a 2-foot wide aggregate shoulder on each side. 2,719 square feet of rip rap was also laid. Disabled parking is available.
