The Lake Sutherland boat launch in Clallam County will be closed for two weeks while crews replace the existing boat ramp.
The launch site, owned and maintained by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, will be closed Tuesday-Sept. 17 while a new ramp is installed.
The current boat ramp is dilapidated and in urgent need of replacement, said Mick Cope, regional wildlife manager.
The department also plans to close the launch for one or two additional days later in the month to install a new boarding float and pilings, but has not yet scheduled a date. Other improvements planned for this site include a new vault restroom and a paved parking lot, according to a department news release.
The ramp replacement was funded by “Jobs Now” funding, approved by the Washington State Legislature this year.
