Visitors to the Washington Street Boat Launch will notice some changes over the coming days as the Cane River Waterway Commission works to improve the recreation area with a new dock, gazebos, and other work. Work is already underway as crews work to remove some of the overgrowth along the perimeters. They will then build a fence around the launch. The area may have to close for a few days, but the commission doesn’t anticipate closing the launch at all while the work is done in phases.
This project is a way for the commission to draw attention to Cane River and provide opportunities for more people to enjoy being outdoors.
