Crumbling concrete prompts closure, repair of Muskegon pier

From our media partner at WOOD TV:

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — As construction on one West Michigan pier has just completed, another will soon be repaired. 

The south breakwater pier at Muskegon’s Pere Marquette Park has needed repairs for years. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers just recently secured the funds to start.

“A few years back, in 2015-2016, we started seeing waves damaging the south breakwater in Muskegon,” civil engineer Chris Schropp said. “At that time, we were able to get some funds together to do some temporary repairs.”

Those temporary repairs helped keep the aged concrete structurally sound for a time, but the repairs merely prolonged the inevitable.
