Chairs and towels will be replaced with construction crews as Egg Harbor’s beach gets a facelift in the coming weeks. Thanks in part to a $120,000 grant from the Fund for Lake Michigan, the beach will add approximately 170 linear feet of sandy coastline after a concrete seawall is removed. Egg Harbor Village Administrator Ryan Heise says investing in improving the beach makes good sense as it looks for ways to keep people local once they get there.
The project, which will coincide with roadwork on County Highway G located near the beach, will not start until after the tourist season comes to a close in October. Heise expects the project will be done in spring 2020.
