Rep. Miller Attends Blue Water River Walk Groundbreaking
October 11, 2012
Representative Candice Miller attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Blue Water River Walk project in Port Huron, MI. The Blue Water River Walk project is a public-private partnership led by the Community Foundation of St. Clair County and will create a new family-and wildlife-friendly waterfront for the whole community to enjoy.
The Blue Water River Walk project is comprised of four components: the River Walk Trail, a paved path along the shoreline that will complete the 54-mile paved Bridge to Bay Trail that runs from Algonac to Lakeport with an expected completion date of summer 2013; the historic Ferry Dock, located at the north end of the river walk being renovated into a 2,500-square-foot platform and expected to be complete by summer 2013; the Fishing Pier, located at the southern end of the river walk and constructed from historic Michigan bridges with a completion date of 2014 or 2015; and the Shoreline Restoration, which includes removing debris, making it safe for residents with an expected completion date of summer 2014.
