Jefferson St. Boat Ramp in Milwaukie to Close for Construction
For Immediate Release -May 31, 2011
The Jefferson Street Boat Ramp will be closed beginning June 6 through July 17 to replace a fractured portion of the sewer line that runs under Jefferson Street from Main Street, across McLoughlin Boulevard, into the boating facility.  Additionally, the Sportcraft boat ramp will be closed beginning July 15 to November 1, so boaters are urged to find alternate boat launches to access the Willamette River during the days when both boat launches will be closed.  
To find an alternate boat launch in the vicinity, visit http://www.boatoregon.com/OSMB/access/access.shtml#Boating_Facilities_in_Oregon.
The City of Milwaukie anticipates construction to be completed before the Milwaukie Daze Festival, held the weekend of July 22.  For more information please contact Community Services Director JoAnn Herrigel at (503) 786-7508.
