SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. — Crews are placing large boulders along the Lake Michigan shoreline in South Haven to protect homes threatened by erosion.

About 10,000 tons of limestone is being brought from Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Holland, where it is then transported to other projects along the shore.

The erosion control projects range from Fennville in Allegan County to Covert in Van Buren County.
