Thank you again for your patience and cooperation as we completed this work. 

Original Post 

Work will soon begin on a number of boat launches in Lac La Biche County.

On July 15, the Holowachuk Estates boat launch will close for approximately two weeks (weather-dependent) to complete upgrades. The project will turn the single launch to a double launch complete with a new approach, concrete pads, and docks.

Also on July 15, crews will begin removing the pier at Whitesands Beach. This work will take two weeks. A dam will be set up around the site, water will be removed, and the concrete pier will be broken up and removed from the lake. This will result in noise in the area.

On August 4, the Poplar Point road access to the lake will be closed for about two weeks to install a new single boat launch, concrete pads, and dock.

Signage will be available at all sites to notify users before the work begins. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we complete these projects.
