Siltcoos/Westlake boat launch construction

I just spoke with Lane County Parks, starting Monday 11/9 there will be construction on the dock at the Westlake boat launch, sounds like the dock will be closed but the launch will only close for short periods of time when they are moving equipment in and out of the water. The work is expected to finish by mid-December and there should be some sort of signage explaining this posted at the launch.

If they leave the bridge and first part of the launch open then people will still be able to climb into boats without getting wet but it will reduce the launch to a slower one at a time process…cheers, roger

FYI- just down the river at Tyee campground is a primitive launch that is fine for kayaks/canoes/drift boats/small (12-14′) fishing boats…you are basically going to slide your boat over a sand/mud bar to get it floating…there are also boat launches around the lake at Nightingales ($10 to launch) and I think also Ada Resort.
