Crescent Shores Boating Access SiteLong Lake Township, MichiganMap View
The Crescent Shores Boating Access Site is one of only two public launch sites on Long Lake. This project involved redesigning the existing road end, single-lane small boat launch and developing an off-road parking facility on the newly-acquired 11.2 acres of land. Solving safety and barrier free access across Crescent Shores Road was a major objective of the project, requiring careful coordination among multiple stakeholder groups. Conceptual design and preliminary engineering were supported by a MDNR Waterways grant. A second Waterways grant was secured in 2016 to help construct the project. Construction was complete in thal fall of 2017.
