MANISTEE, Mich. (AP) - The state Department of Natural Resources is to show off upgrades that have been made to the Little Manistee River Weir.

The weir is an egg-take and salmon harvest facility operated by the DNR’s fisheries division. It’s located just east of Lake Michigan.

According to a news release from the DNR, the improvements include a universally accessible viewing platform, Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant restrooms and a universally accessible paved trail that supports guided and self-guided tours of weir operations.

The changes were made thanks to a Natural Resources Trust Fund grant. They’re to be unveiled during a ribbon-cutting event Thursday.

The public is welcome to join DNR fisheries division chief Jim Dexter and local officials at the ceremony. Tours are available to attendees.
