The boat launch on 72nd Street KPS near Long Branch reopened at 3 p.m. Sept. 26 following Pierce County’s rehabilitation of the ramp – two days ahead of schedule.
Crews replaced the existing ramp structure with concrete panels purchased from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The county will repave the ramp approach Oct. 1, but the launch will remain open during the work.
Nearby county-operated launch sites include A Street KPS in Home, Hall Road in Vaughn, and Randall Drive NW near Gig Harbor.
