Lewis Street boat launch in Monroe
to close July 20 for repairs

OLYMPIA – Beginning July 20, the Lewis Street boat launch in Monroe will be closed to public access as crews install a new boat ramp and make other improvements to the site, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced today.

The water access site, which is located near the Skykomish River Bridge on Highway 203 in Monroe, will be closed through July 30, said Kye Iris, WDFW regional lands supervisor.

Funded with a grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office, the improvement project includes paving a portion of the access site and adding ADA parking.

Iris said two alternative boat launches are nearby. Those sites are located in Sultan off Highway 2, and off First Street in Snohomish.
