TRENTON, Mich. (AP) — A groundbreaking for the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge visitor center that was put on hold because of the partial federal government shutdown has been rescheduled.
The group Friends of the Detroit River announced Tuesday that groundbreaking for the 12,000-square-foot facility is planned for Nov. 8.
An event had been scheduled for earlier this month in Trenton, but it was postponed because of a lapse in federal appropriations. The facility is to be built at the Refuge Gateway, near the refuge's Humbug Marsh area.
The gateway will include a 16-foot wildlife sculpture built with help from employees of DTE Energy Co.
The refuge includes more than 5,700 acres along 48 miles of the lower Detroit River and western Lake Erie.
The partial government shutdown ended Oct. 16.
