Marina Launch at Walnut Creek Closed for Dredging

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has just announced that the marina launch at the Walnut Creek access area in Fairview, Erie County, will be closed from April 5 to approximately April 20 due to a dredging project.

The access area will remain open during this time, PFBC said in its release.

The commission recently completed a $3.77 million project at the access area which involved constructing a new 800-foot concrete panel wall to encase the existing, deteriorated channel wall on the east bank. The wall connects to a new fishing pier that meets standards for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Also, approximately 850 feet of rock rip-rap slope protection along the west bank was removed and replaced with a permanent underwater key-way and rock platform, which will be used for future maintenance and dredging of the creek bottom.
