Work to begin on replacement of boat launch
Replacement of the boat launch at the Litchfield Town Beach on Bantam Lake is scheduled to begin Sept. 23.
The $165,000 project will begin with removal of the existing concrete block launch and its retaining wall. A dam will be built around the structure to allow workers to remove the blocks and wall and build the new launch.
The project is expected to take up to three weeks to complete, according to the town’s public works department. The area around the launch will be closed to boaters and pedestrians, but the town beach will remain open.
