North Shore fix on the horizon

This map shows the project limits of the 2019 North Shore Drive reconstruction project.

Two rounds of bids on the reconstruction of North Shore Drive came back significantly over budget, but the cities of Grand Haven and Ferrysburg are going ahead with respective projects that meet at their border.

The first round of bids, received in May, saw costs more than $800,000 over budget for a project that will cost Grand Haven roughly $1.2 million. Despite shifting the timeframe of the project and rebidding the work, the price tag received this month was more than $600,000 (27 percent) over budget.
