State Bridge boat launch site to open temporarily for weekend

Contact: Toby Sprunk, Open Space Director, 970-328-8698 or

May 31, 2012 – Eagle County’s State Bridge boat launch site will again open temporarily for the weekend beginning at 5 p.m. June 1. There will be no charge for use of the launch site. Users are asked to note that camping is not permitted.

The State Bridge site will re-close Monday morning to allow site development work to continue. In partnership with the BLM, Eagle County is installing a concrete boat launch, restrooms and changing stations. In addition, crews are paving the driveway and making improvements to the parking area. A fee of $3 per vehicle will be implemented following construction completion.

The project is being funded through the county’s dedicated Open Space Fund with work being performed by B & B Excavating of Eagle. Once work concludes at State Bridge, the contractor will move to the Two Bridges site where similar improvements are planned.
