POMEROY -- The Willow Landing parking lot and boat launch behind Little Goose Dam will remain closed until further notice.
In a release, Dave Schmode, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project engineer, said a recent repaving project at the park needs more time until traffic can travel on the new surface.
The soil beneath the pre-existing asphalt has apparently been saturated by spring rains and was unable to support the weight of repeated passes of construction equipment, Schmode said. Engineers will test the surface in about a month and reopen the area to traffic if possible.
Boat owners can continue to launch at Central Ferry Park, Little Goose Landing, Illia Landing and the Port of Garfield boat ramp.
