Abstract : A small boat harbor located at the mouth of the Cedar River in the western upper peninsula of Michigan has long been the goal of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and local entities. Because of the distances between the two existing adjacent harbors of Escanaba, Michigan and Menominee, Michigan, a local harbor of refuge (small boat harbor) would be convenient to area boaters. The present plan of improvement requires construction of an eastern pier, 875 feet in length of rubblemound construction, and rehabilitating the existing western pier with rubblemound construction (navigation lights would be installed on each pier). The construction would allow a recreational small boat harbor to be built by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources upstream of the described construction.
