Extra day needed to complete rehabilitation of Hall Road boat ramp

Aug. 3, 2012

Pierce County will reopen the boat launch on Hall Road in Vaughn at 3 p.m. Aug. 4 after crews complete a rehabilitation of the boat ramp. The boat launch was closed on July 30 for the work.
The county is replacing the existing ramp structure with concrete panels purchased from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Boaters can use the ramp from 4:30 p.m. Aug. 3 to 9 a.m. Aug. 4, but should be aware that the width of the ramp is currently 12 feet, as opposed to the original structure's width of 16 feet.
The ramp is temporarily lined with concrete ecology blocks and a geo-textile fabric to protect the ramp's rock base. These materials will be removed once crews install additional concrete blocks Aug. 4. The addition of these blocks will bring the width back to 16 feet.

The ramp will be closed for several hours one day next week while the county paves the road approach. The closure will be announced when the timeframe has been confirmed.

Nearby county-operated launch sites include A Street KPS in Home, 72nd Street KPS near Longbranch, and Randall Drive NW near Gig Harbor.
