Earlier this year the City of East Jordan broke ground on their “Joining Jordan” project. Funded in part by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s (MEDC) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the $2.2M grant project includes a pedestrian boardwalk featuring pavilions and a fishing deck that will connect the main pier of the City Marina on the east side of Lake Charlevoix to the new pocket park on the west side. The construction crews, led by Team Elmer’s, have made significant progress.

As the picture shows the boardwalk connecting the two sides is nearing completion and the two pavilions are taking shape. Crews are simultaneously working on the bridge construction and curbing for the area, construction will be continuing as long as Mother Nature cooperates.
