High water levels on Lake Michigan are slowing though not stopping construction of the new Cana Island Visitors Center. The causeway between the park and the mainland is submerged under several feet of water. That's made it impossible for trucks to drive to the island to pour concrete for the center's foundations. Door County Facilities and Parks Director Wayne Spritka, however, says work is proceeding thanks to a bit of improvising by contractors.
Cana Island remains open to visitors as contractors do their work. Spritka says the slowdown will likely delay completion on the visitors center until mid-October.
