The Kewaunee Harbor restoration project expects to be finished on time. Construction crews will head back to the site on Monday to begin work after taking time off for the weather and finish up some other projects. Approximately 70 percent of the seawall’s tiebacks need to be installed before work can begin on the upland portion of the project. Kewaunee Public Works Director Matt Murphy says that is the point when residents and visitors will notice the positive changes being made.
Work is expected to be finished by June 1, which is when the harbor assistance grants making the project possible expire. Other improvements associated with the Kewaunee Harbor restoration include a boardwalk, parking lot, and walking trails through a newly developed park.
