The Ford River Mouth Boating Access Site, located 7 miles south of Escanaba on M-35 in Delta County, will close July 11 through Sept. 3 for a site improvement project.
Michigan Department of Natural Resources parks and recreation staff will oversee improvements to the site, including paving of the access road and parking area and installation of a concrete sidewalk.
The following boating access sites also provide access to Little Bay de Noc:
This closure also will affect anglers who typically fish along the Ford River shore.
This project is partially 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.
