Temporary closure at Hoist Basin access site

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced today that on Monday, July 22, the Hoist Basin boating access site in Marquette County will begin a temporary closure for installation of a new concrete boat ramp. Work will be completed by a DNR construction crew. The boat launch is expected to be open by Friday, July 26.

This project is funded through the Michigan State Waterways Fund, a restricted fund derived from boat registration fees and the Michigan marine fuel tax, which is used for the construction, operation and maintenance of recreational boating facilities, harbors and inland waterways.
