The final rip rap stone has been placed on the North Bank from the North Shore boat ramp nearly to the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club. If it looks like something is missing from the top photo, you are right. The condo boat docks which originally were left stranded some 40 feet from the shore line have now been completely removed. The docks are currently being stored at the North Shore staging area. Below, work continues on the new causeway around the AMIL spillway. The older roadway is gone, but some steel sheet piling still must be removed. Beacon photos by Charles Prince.

BUCKEYE LAKE – It took weeks to get an update from ODNR, but there’s good news on the buttress wall construction.

Late last week, ODNR told The Beacon that as of Monday, March 4:

• 15,905 linear feet of two-pass has been done; and

• 4,480 lineal feet or almost a mile is completely installed.

The total of 34,910 lineal feet means 58 percent of the buttress wall has been installed.

The update included ODNR’s standard cavaet that, “All completed work remains subject to acceptance testing and approval by ODNR; and depending on testing, additional work may be required in some areas.
