      Boating access site closure planned

      The Hoist Basin boating access site in Marquette County will experience a temporary closure while a new concrete boat ramp is installed, the Department of Natural Resources announced on Wednesday.

      The access site will be closed beginning July 22 and is expected to reopen on July 26. The project to install a concrete boat ramp is funded by the Michigan State Waterways Fund.

      The waterways fund is a collection of registration fees and the Michigan marine fuel tax and is used for construction, operation, and maintenance of recreational boating facilities.
