Cedar River State Harbor and Boating Access Site construction begins Tuesday; fuel sales unavailable

An improvement project at the Cedar River State Harbor and Boating Access Site in Menominee County gets underway Tuesday, Sept. 6. Though the harbor and site will stay open during the work – which includes repairing and replacing the sidewalk along the seawall, replacing the fuel dock and fuel pumps, and raising the three finger piers – the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said visitors should expect some disruptions, including fuel sales. 

Harbor slips 1-4, fuel sales and the pump-out station will close for the remaining 2022 season. In addition, the sidewalk leading between the parking area and harbor will close. Construction should be completed by Oct. 15.

The $345,000 project is made possible through waterways capital outlay funding, which is derived from boater registration and the fuel tax.

Anyone planning to visit the Cedar River State Harbor and Boating Access Site is encouraged to visit to view any changes to the closing and reopening dates. Additional information on closures and detours in DNR facilities, including state trails, boat launches, parks and campgrounds, also is listed on this page.
