LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) - Officials in a northeast Ohio city are hoping to complete a $205,000 fish shelf next year that they say would prevent erosion and help fishermen.

Cleveland.com reports (https://bit.ly/1NF8jg8 ) officials said Monday the funding is finalized and the design work is underway for the project in Lakewood.

Officials say the project would entail the stacking of rocks and concrete as erosion protection along the bank of the Rocky River. Experts say the shelf also creates a habitat that attracts fish by allowing them a place to get out of the river’s current.

City Service Director Joe Beno says erosion along the riverbank has eliminated 15 feet of land.

Officials say it should be completed by the end of October 2016.
