Work to start in October on Rushbrook Boat Launch improvement project

Work is set to start on improvements
to the Rushbrook Floats area
Parking spaces will be limited at the Rushbrook Boat Launch starting today as the City commences with the start of a six week capital improvement project at the east end facility.

The upper parking lot overlooking the boat launch will be partially closed as of today and for the next six weeks, part of the set up process for the major work to take place on the Boat Launch itself, which will see pre cast concert panels installed on the site of the aging and deteriorated boat launch.

To facilitate that process, the Boat Launch itself will be out of service and closed from Wednesday, October 28th until Thursday, November 5th.

During that period of time the public is advised to make use of the Port Edward Boat Launch.

It's estimated that the cost of the replacement project will be at the 200,000 dollar mark, funded in full by the City's Rushbrook Improvement Area Fund and not making use of funding from local taxpayers.

You can review the background to the project from our items of April this year which highlighted the financial plan in place for the work at Rushbrook.
