FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard will be getting a new $11.3 million complex to replace its current station and boathouse along Lake Erie in northeast Ohio.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald (http://bit.ly/15eMpcA ) reports that the existing 100-year-old building in Fairport Harbor is to be demolished over the coming months, with the new station and boat house expected to be in place by Sept. 14.

Lt. Commander Edward Wieland says the new complex will improve efficiency.

The new boathouse will be a regional boat maintenance facility providing service for boats from other Coast Guard stations.

Dispatchers and officers will be moved to temporary trailers by May 17 so demolition work can start. But the Coast Guard says officers and dispatchers will not cut back services.
