ASHLAND, Wisc. -

The Ashland City Council has approved the final ore dock concept design.

The ore dock was acquired by the city in 2014 and now it will be revitalized so that people from all around the region can enjoy its beauty.

It will include a diamond walk and railing, a lookout shelter and a transient dock.

The construction will be done in three different phases.

April Kroner, the Planning and Development Director, said "It allows the community to get out on that ore dock and utilize it for fishing and recreation and for potential tourism."

The total cost of all three phases of construction are estimated to be $9 million.
