Photo supplied by City of Elliot Lake A boat launch and boardwalk redevelopment project in Elliot Lake is moving to the next step. The project aims to enhance lake access, give better proximity to walking, hiking and ATV trails and better access to the nearby trailer park. The project would see replacement of the boardwalk with a floating boardwalk with the potential for adding on a 50-meter pier, revamped parking, landscaping, boat launches and marine docking. Construction is planned for next summer. If funding applications are successful, the project will align with future development of the area including a fishing pier, marina docking and parking for development. The estimated cost is over $800,000. The work would also make the facility fully handicapped accessible, a requirement that is part of the application process and fits in with the overall needs of residents.
