People looking to hit the waters around Prince Rupert at the end of October will need to make the trip to Port Edward to launch their boat.

The City of Prince Rupert has announced that the boat launch at Rushbrook will be completely closed for nine days between Oct. 28 and Nov. 5. in order to install precast concrete panels to improve the facility.

With the boat launch closed, the city is encouraging boaters to use the District of Port Edward’s public boat launch facility until the work is done.

The closure of the boat launch follows the partial closure of the Rushbrook parking lot for six weeks beginning Oct. 1 for upgrades. The total cost of the work is $200,000, which will be funded by the Rusbrook Improvement Area Fund.
