Popular boat ramp in Kenmore will close Nov. 18 for renovation

Lake Washington - Mercer Island, WA (King County)

by WA Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

OLYMPIA - A popular boat ramp in Kenmore that provides access to the north end of Lake Washington will be closed for renovation Nov. 18 through the middle of March 2014.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), 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, WDFW regional lands agent, said the timing of the project is designed to avoid disrupting use of the facility by anglers and other boaters during the busy summer months.

"We want to make sure this renovated facility is ready to go by the time the good weather returns to the area," Iris said.

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.
