An ADA-accessible walkway was constructed on the Lake Michigan beach in the City of Frankfort. It was constructed in three sections with 8-inch-thick reinforced concrete placed on 6-inch compacted-in-place gravel. Section 1 is 12 feet by 310 feet and extends from Sac Street to the ACOE breakwall. Section 2 is 8 feet by 420 feet and connects the Lake Michigan beach parking area to Section 1 at Sac Street. Section 3 is 8 feet by 175 feet and connects Miami Street to Sac Street. Visitors can access the walkway from four different ADA-compliant points. The site has free parking, restrooms, a footwash station, swingsets, benches, trash receptacles, and educational signage about the dangers of waves and surges along with safety rules associated with the pier.
