Additional armor stone placement, demolition of the structure’s surface and placement of a new concrete cap are taking place this spring.

“The Detroit District has measures in place protecting our workforce from COVID-19, while ensuring continuity of operations,” said USACE in its announcement.

A contract for the work, in the amount of $1.6 million, was awarded to Muskegon’s Great Lakes Dock & Materials, LLC in September.

The repair work is on a portion of the breakwall that extends out to its elbow; the far end where the lighthouse stand is not under repair.
