The City of Marquette and The Superior Watershed Partnership kicked off a coastal restoration project Monday night with a public meeting.
Over a half mile of Lake Superior shoreline adjacent to Lakeshore Boulevard in Marquette will be restored. The project is funded by a $58,000 grant from the Michigan Coastal Management Program and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. The 3,000 foot section of shoreline is currently lined with a tall ridge of rocks that obscures the view of Lake Superior.
The city is looking for input from the community regarding shoreline restoration design, public access, viewing platforms, and road re–design.
For more information contact the Superior Watershed Partnership at 228–6095.
