Repairs scheduled at Kipling boat launch site in Delta County

ESCANABA – The Kipling Boating Access Site in Delta County will be closed on Monday, July 14, for channel dredging and installation of a new concrete boat ramp, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said.

The project is expected to be completed by Friday, Aug. 1, and the site will reopen at that time.

During construction, boaters are encouraged to use the nearby Rapid River DNR launch, Gladstone Municipal Marina, Hunters Point United States Forest Service launch and Escanaba North Shore launch.

This project is funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund, a restricted fund derived from boat registration fees and the Michigan marine fuel tax, which is used for the construction, operation and maintenance of recreational boating facilities, harbors and inland waterways.
