Boat launch 5 miles east of Concrete
to close Aug. 23 for ramp replacement

OLYMPIA - Beginning Aug. 23, the Faber Ferry North boat launch on the Skagit River will be closed to public access as crews install a new boat ramp, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced today.

The water-access site, which is located five miles east of Concrete, will be closed through Sept. 15, said Kye Iris, WDFW regional lands supervisor. The project is funded with a grant administered through the U.S. Forest Service.

Iris said two alternative boat launches are nearby - the Hamilton and Faber Ferry South launch sites. For more information on WDFW’s water access sites, visit http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/water_access/.
