Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) last week announced that there will be a delay in opening the State boat launch located on the Branford River in Branford. The launch was closed for renovations late in the summer of 2016 and was originally scheduled to re-open in mid-November, but construction issues still need to be addressed.
The completed launch will be a state-of-the-art, handicapped accessible design and will include a two lane, grooved, concrete slab ramp with concrete pavers to prevent erosion; a regraded parking lot, and a floating dock system to facilitate the safe and efficient launching and retrieval of boats.
Every effort will be made to open the launch as soon as possible. Boaters should check the Branford River State boat launch page on the DEEP Boating Division WEB site at: http://ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2686&q=383784&deepNav_GID=1620 for updates.
