Maintenance prep to close boat launch on Boney Falls reservoir

GLADSTONE, MI— Upper Peninsula Power Company is closing the boat launch facility at dam #4 on the Boney Falls reservoir next Tuesday.

Officials say it’s required to prepare for planned maintenance and improvements this summer. Crews will be assembling a construction barge and staging materials necessary for the improvements.

UPPCO is asking people to use the boat launch near dam #3 on the Escanaba River, instead.

Access to the campground near dam #4 will be available, but will be delayed at times.
