LINCOLN, Neb. — The South Shore Lake access point at Lewis and Clark State Recreation Area will be partially closed for improvements beginning April 4, according to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. The trail system will remain accessible.
The project includes the construction of two rock jetties to decrease the rate of erosion, provide fish habitat and ensure proper bank stabilization in the area, which has seen significant wave-related shoreline erosion and shale and sediment build-up in the channel. Additional improvements include a new boat dock, ramp and an improved parking facility.
These improvements are funded by the Nebraska Environmental Trust and the Sport Fish Restoration program and are expected to be completed by June 15.
