The County is currently finishing up design work for Phase 2 of the McKinley Marina Reconstruction project. Construction of Phase 1 of the three-phase marina redevelopment project was completed in 2020/2021 and consisted primarily of reconstructed public parking areas, a new marina entry drive, new LED lighting, utilities, and enhanced stormwater management utilizing green infrastructure (GI) best management practices including permeable pavers and bio infiltration basins.

Phase 2, which will include GI stormwater management features, also encompasses reconstruction of boat trailer parking areas, additional passenger car parking, renovated boat storage area and related utilities, new LED lighting, new underground fuel tanks and rebuilt concrete boat launch ramps. In addition, the fish cleaning facility will be reconstructed and a new boat washdown area will be added. New pedestrian walkways are included, and existing walkways will be repaved including much-needed repaving of the walkway along the Lake Michigan seawall. Other amenities such as landscaping, new fencing and site furnishings, including benches and bike racks, are also planned.

Timeline

Funding for construction of Phase 2 was approved in the 2022 capital budget and is anticipated to begin in late summer or early fall of 2022. Construction will most likely take a year to complete. During this time, the County plans to keep at least two launch ramps and 50 boat trailer parking stalls open and available to boaters.
