Work will start October 7 on a complete rebuild of the harbor at Northwestern Michigan College's Great Lakes Campus in Traverse City, home to the Great Lakes Maritime Academy and the Great Lakes Water Studies Institute. The work will include a new breakwall and the dredging of approximately 30,000 cubic yards of sand. The US Army Corps of Engineers awarded a contract for the work to Great Lakes Dock and Materials of Muskegon for $1.4 million. The Corps will pay for $2 million of the $2.6 million budgeted total with NMC to fund the remainder. The project has a targeted Dec. 23 completion date.
