WDFW's Luhr's Landing boat launch to close
Aug. 4-8 during culvert work
The Luhr's Landing water-access site near Olympia will be closed Aug. 4-8 while a crew from Thurston County Public Works replaces a failed culvert at the intersection near the entrance to the boat launch.
The launch site, owned and operated by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), is located just west of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge on Puget Sound.
Brian Mitchell, WDFW natural resource operations supervisor, said access to the launch could also be restricted during the week of Aug.11 while work continues to install the new culvert. The work zone is at the intersection of D'Milluhr Drive and Scenic Drive at the entrance to the water-access area.
"We're sorry about the inconvenience to boaters, but we're pleased to see this work get done," Mitchell said. "By improving drainage, the project should help to reduce maintenance of the road and parking lot at the access site."
Luhr's Landing is one of more than 700 water-access sites owned and operated by WDFW.
