Meeting Discussed Upgrades to Lexington Harbor

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources held a public information session Monday, June 17 about the waterways program assessment study for improvements to Lexington State Harbor in Sanilac County.  At the meeting, DNR staff, along with project consultant Edgewater Resources, presented an overview of upgrades that are needed in Lexington Harbor and the surrounding area. Village of Lexington representatives were also on hand to help answer questions.  Several ideas were presented and the DNR along with Edgewater Resources hopes to finalize the concepts soon. The enhancement project is funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund, a restricted fund derived from boat registration fees, state gasoline tax and the Michigan marine fuel tax for the construction, operation, and maintenance of recreational boating facilities, harbors, and inland waterways.  For more information on the study, you can visit the Village of Lexington’s Website.
