A $1.3 million grant for shoreline stabilization at Illinois Beach State Park in Zion was announced Thursday by Gov. Pat Quinn. The project involves the construction and installation of onshore and offshore protective measures to allow natural movement of sediment without eroding the existing shoreline. The sand that has accumulated at the North Beach area will also be removed and redistributed. Copenhaver Construction, Inc. of Gilberts, IL, was the lowest of four bidders for the project at $1.378 million. Illinois Beach State Park, which is administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, consists of 2,909 acres and 5.8 miles of Lake Michigan Shoreline. The project is part of the $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now! capital construction program.
