The Argo Livery will be closed starting September 20 due to construction. Construction is expected to be complete by early 2022.
The livery’s construction is aimed at improving accessibility, with the goal of universal access for all users. Improvements include a new and improved accessible parking lot, walks, fishing dock, site furnishings, and EZ launch kayak docs. Additionally, the restrooms will be renovated as part of the project. A rain garden will also be installed to help capture stormwater runoff.
Because of these improvements, the entire livery site will be closed to visitors. Signs and barricades are installed to safely direct users away from the construction zone. The city is asking that users of the adjacent trail follow posted detour signs as they ride, walk, rollerblade, and commute along this path.
These improvements to the livery are definitely needed. Although Argo Livery is a hot spot for tubing, canoeing, and kayaking, it presently isn’t known for being the most accessible place. With these updated changes, more patrons will be able to enjoy floating down the Huron River, walking along the trails, and enjoy one of the best parks in the area.
