Kickoff event marks Detroit Harbor dredging start

A special event is scheduled Tuesday marking the official start of the $5.2 million Detroit Harbor dredging project.

Dignitaries plan to gather at the harbor waterfront at 11 a.m. to mark the occasion, including state Sen. Frank Lasee, Rep. Garey Bies and Town Chairman Joel Gunnlaugsson.

With the aid of a state Harbor Assistance Program grant, Detroit Harbor will be dredged, deepened and widened in the first major dredging work since 1939. As Lake Michigan water levels dropped, it has become increasingly difficult for ferries and other vessels to navigate the harbor.

Foth, a consulting engineering, science and construction management firm headquartered in Green Bay, will serve as the project engineer and sponsor the kickoff event.
