A sunken, wooden dock will be re-purposed to provide habitat and hiding spots for fish and other aquatic life just northeast of the Michigan Avenue lift bridge across from RiverWorks. Plans include the removal of horizontal beams on the old dock to be replaced by interlocking root wads and stones that create in-water habitat for nearly three dozen fish species, including bass and perch. Other work includes removal of invasive Japanese knotweed and installation of a wide array of native plant species along the shoreline and into the water.
