  • Charlevoix channel dredging scheduled to conclude by May 15

    About 13,000 cubic yards of material is scheduled to be removed from the Charlevoix Harbor channel before May 15, as part of a maintenance dredging contract under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District.  Great Lakes Dock and Materials, LLC., located in Muskegon, will perform the work for the Corps of Engineers for approximately $480,000 and place the dredged materials in open water in Lake Michigan. The state-approved open water is located about a mile and a half northwest of the harbor entrance. 
  • Corps of Engineers begins structure maintenance in Charlevoix

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District will begin planned maintenance work in the navigation channel in Charlevoix, Michigan this month to replace deteriorating timber fenders along the channel revetments. The repairs are funded through a Fiscal Year 2023 Work Plan budget package of $530,000 and will be used to replace 1,100 feet of timber fenders along the north and south channel revetment walls. The timber fenders protect the structures from vessel impact. The existing weathered timber fenders along the revetments are beyond their design life and require replacement.
  • Safety changes coming for Charlevoix South Pier

    DETROIT- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is scheduled to remove the ancillary walkway on the Charlevoix Harbor South Pier in Charlevoix, Michigan due to safety concerns. Waves and ice movement have repeatedly caused damage to the walkway and its removal will provide cost savings and improve the wave attenuator’s functionality on the adjacent walkway. The purpose of the attenuator is to reduce energy and impact of incoming waves. “This particular section of the pier has been closed since October 2020 because it is unsafe for pedestrian traffic,” said Elizabeth Newell Wilkinson Grand Haven Resident Engineer. “The benefits of removing it outweigh the alternative of extensive repairs and costly maintenance.”
