The Illinois Waterway is to see a major advancement with the commencement of the Starved Rock Breakwater Project. A ceremony will kick off the first large-scale ecosystem restoration in the Illinois Waterway Ports Commission area in over 10 years on February 14, 2024.

The completion of this heralded venture is projected for October 2024.
