The Allegan County Road Commission and Saugatuck Township will be hosting a Public Information Workshop on Long-Term Erosion Management Strategies for Lakeshore Drive.


The Public Workshop will be held at the Saugatuck High School on Tuesday, July 19th from 4-6pm, with identical presentations occurring from 4-4:30pm and again from 5-5:30pm, followed by opportunities for public feedback.


Topics to be discussed include existing bluff conditions, the ongoing risk coastal erosion poses to the roadway, and design options for long-term management for Lakeshore Drive.
