Potawatomi State Park Superintendent Erin Brown-Stender says she is excited for the new pier project, expected to be wrapped up this fall. Brown-Stender says the construction is made possible through a generous donation from the Friends of Potawatomi organization in addition to state and federal funding. While Brown-Stender says the timeframe for completion remains about six months away, no start date has been finalized.
Potawatomi remains open to the public. The pier replaces a handicap accessible dock, which was damaged during a storm in 2014.
