Shorefront protection work on track for fall start in Ephraim

The Village of Ephraim’s Board of Trustees approved a proposal last week to work with AECOM, an engineering firm out of Green Bay, to address shorefront protection. AECOM will team with local expert Mike Karr to identify what is necessary to protect the village’s downtown from high water levels on Lake Michigan. Trustee Ken Nelson says the agreement will include a fleshed out design and all necessary documentation to put the project out for bid by September.


AECOM representatives have already met with village officials, with two more expected. The contract between AECOM and Ephraim is for just over $35,500, with five grand already paid out. Construction is still on track for a fall start.
