Parking Lot Construction
to begin Mid-May, 2023!

This spring, a long-term Whitefish Point Joint Committee project is set to get underway…in the form of a new parking lot! Some of you might recall that the Shipwreck Society applied for a Federal Land Access Program (FLAP) grant back in 2015-16 to help cover the costs associated with the redesign, and ultimately the reconstruction of the parking areas at the Point. This grant was awarded in 2020, and while COVID delayed many aspects of this initiative…it is now tentatively scheduled to begin in May.

Parking Lot Project

U.S. Lighthouse Service 2nd Assistant Keeper’s Quarters

Going along with the new parking areas will eventually be the reconstruction of a U.S. Lighthouse Service 2nd Assistant Keeper’s Quarters, and new areas of habitat restoration.

GLSHS will be working with the Chippewa County Road Commission, Michigan Department of Transportation and Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division…as well as Seney National Wildlife Refuge (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) and Michigan Audubon Society/Whitefish Point Bird Observatory in the completion of the parking lot construction phase of this important project.
