Norway Reservoir and Menominee River Boating Access Temporarily Close

The Norway Reservoir and Menominee River Railroad Dock boating access sites will close temporarily in July for improvement projects, the Department of Natural Resources said today.

The Norway Reservoir site in Dickinson County will close Monday, July 9 for necessary repairs. Project managers anticipate completion by Friday, July 13. The site will reopen upon completion of the project.

The Menominee River Railroad Dock site in Menominee County will close Monday, July 16 for installation of a new concrete boat ramp. Project completion is tentatively scheduled for Friday, July 27. The site will reopen upon completion of the project. The nearest alternative public boat launches are the River Park and Marina launches in Menominee.

Both boating access site improvement projects are 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.
