Our Objective

The goal of this project is to design a naturalize the Grand River through downtown Grand Rapids.  The design will include remodeling the dams downstream of the 4th Street Dam to create safe passage for kayakers and boaters as well as make the river more aesthetically pleasing.  It will also include some whitewater characteristics for the kayakers as well. In addition the team will design a modification to part of the 4th Street Dam to make the river safer for fishermen, boaters, and kayakers.  However, this will not include removing any of the dam.  The design will also include a plan for portaging around the 4th Street Dam and increasing access points to enter and exit the river from.
