The state has closed a popular boat ramp at the north end of Lake Washington for renovations. The ramp in Kenmore will be closed through the middle of March.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife, which owns and operates the facility on the Sammamish River, plans to replace the existing single ramp with a new double ramp, install new wheelchair-accessible flush toilets and pave the parking lot.

Kye Iris, the department’s regional lands agent, said in a news release that the timing of the project is designed to avoid disrupting use of the facility by anglers and other boaters during the busy summer months.

The renovation project is a cooperative effort with the city of Kenmore, which provided funding to upgrade the facility, Iris said, noting that the city will also help to maintain the site once the renovation is completed.
