BC Hydro will be soon start construction at the Syringa Park boat ramp.

Improvements planned for this year include replacing damaged portions of the ramp, filling any gaps and placing rip rap along the edge of the ramp.

BC Hydro will also assess what other upgrades the ramp requires, and will move ahead with further improvements in 2016 or 2017, water levels permitting.

In order for this work to be completed, the boat ramp will be closed to the public until Wednesday, March 11. This closure is necessary to ensure the safety of workers and the public during construction. The boat ramp will reopen for public use on March 12.

“We recognize the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience and support while these improvements are completed,” said spokeswoman Mary Anne Coules.
