Crews are expected to begin mobilizing equipment and materials at Kabetogama Lake today.

They are replacing a boat launch within Voyageurs National Park.

The original launch was built in the 1980s and has deteriorated.

The new launch ramp will replace the current footprint of forty-foot wide, sixteen-foot lanes, constructed out of concrete, and include one-inch-deep V-Groove patterns to assist with traction while launching or loading watercraft.

The launch will be closing on September 18

A nearby picnic area, beach, canoe and kayak launch and toilet will also shut down.

There will be a temporary portable toilet available near the marina area.

Watercraft access from the lake to the visitor center and marina area will remain open as conditions allow.

There will also be limited parking near the visitor center during construction due to the staging of supplies and equipment.

The park is directing users to its other launches at the Woodenfrog State Forest and Ash River Visitor Center while the work takes place.
