Grand River Marsh Site Improvements (10A4G)
Professional Engineering worked closely with the Department of Natural Resources and the Division of State Facilities on this project. Project included adding accessible paths to a new fishing pier, accessible boat landing, and hunting blind located in the Grand River Marsh area.The project also included impoving an existing clear span bridge that serves DNR service vehicles, foot traffic, and wheel chairs. The bridge was retopped and railing replaced. The gravel roads either side of the bridge were modified to meet current wheel chair standards. The parking areas throughout the wildlife area were improved to be accessible and stalls were posted to designate disabled parking slots. Professional Engineering completed the plans and specifications for the accessible trails, fishing pier, hunting blind and new boat landing in the Grand River Marsh. The plans were designed to minimize the impact on our natural resources. The accessible trails were created to access the new fishing pier and hunting blind located within the Grand River Marsh. The former lock and dam site receives moderate use by shore anglers and this project will enhance their use, particularly for disabled persons. The wildlife area receives heavy use by gun deer hunters, and this project will provide accessibility for many hunters.
