The Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced today that the Bolles Harbor boating access site in Monroe County will remain open during roadway reconstruction.
The site will remain open while the entrance road is being replaced, which is the first stage of the project. Signs notifying boaters of the site status have been posted at the boating access site. The second phase of construction, which is expected to be completed by Sept. 29, will not affect launch use at the site and will remain open to boaters during that phase.The construction project includes grade adjustments and roadway paving, ramp lighting and landscaping with native species. This project is being funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund, a restricted fund derived from the collection of boat registration fees, a portion of the Michigan marine fuel tax and user fees. Waterways funding is dedicated to the acquisition, construction, operation and maintenance of recreational boating facilities.This is one of several public access sites on Lake Erie. The next closest DNR boat launch is located at William C. Sterling State Park.
