ADA Complaint Canoe and Kayak Launch
The Waukegan Port District will install an ADA compliant Canoe and Kayak Launch at the Harbor this spring ready for use by summer 2017. It will be located between the launch ramps and the government pier. The Waukegan Harbor Citizens Advisory Group (CAG) contributed funding to purchase the ramp.
The launch is part of a larger effort including a viewing and staging area. The GWDC wrote a grant to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources on behalf of the Port District for funding in 2014. A lack of a State budget has slowed progress. For now, just the launch will be installed, followed by additional improvements if/when State funding is released.
