JULY 21, 2016 : The wall is looking great! Thanks to the city workers!If your wondering on how the design ended up the way it is, just ask us.
The final design was not the 1st idea, BUT with the DNR, DOT, city, WRTO, and our engineer this was the final design to meet many needs of all those departments.
Final elements were completed in the early spring 2017 including a lovely wooden rail fence and a gate so that duck hunters can access the water way.
