Pilings - This is all that remains of the old Ann Arbor Carferry Dock near the lighthouse and the mouth of the Menominee River (looking back toward where the dock used to be; the area is now a boat launch)
Pilings - Even the pilings are slowly rotting away, just as the carferry service gradually disappeared more than a few years ago.
Boat Launch - This is what the area where the old Ann Arbor Carferry Dock used to be looks like today.

Peshtigo Bridge Replacement Project
In June 2012, after schools were closed for the summer, the old bridge over the Peshtigo River in the center of town was torn down. It is in the process of being replaced by a newer bridge. The Peshtigo River has been drawn way down, as they will be doing some work on the footings of the dam at the same time. I will try to get over there from time to time this summer to see what progress is being made. Here are some photos of the project from July 3:
Bridge Out - I am standing on the south end of the old roadway leading to the bridge (looking north)
Dam - Looking down-river at the dam
Further up-river - Looking down-river at the bridge and dam areas

Peshtigo River - Zoomed in view of the area near Badger Park from the old roadway leading to the bridge
Forlorn sign - "No Lifeguard On Duty" ... how about "No River In Sight"?
