Title: Marquette Breakwalls
Post by: Redrover on November 29, 2017, 11:41:36 AM
I have a question.

Aren't the Upper and Lower Harbor break walls also meant as an emergency dock for ships in trouble?

I remember in the eighties it was 15 feet of water along them and there were ship cleats on the Lower Harbor Break wall.

Now these inside these walls are filled with sand and rock is actually being piled along the inside where a ship might dock in an emergency creating a true cluster for someone to answer to in the eventuality of an emergency.

This would be a perfect federal infrastructure project

or does Readers Digest have to be brought in so it can be dredged correctly like Grand Marais?
