Joe Russell, NR Spec SR Trails & Waterways, DNR Two Harbors Office, will describe plans to improve the Pike Lake public landing area (Carmen’s Way). DNR projects of this nature must address storm water management, disability access and developing a safe place for boats to pull plugs and check for invasive species. The planned project will maintain a good driving lane, add designated spots for boat inspections, find a good balance between trailer parking and single car spots (for kayakers, swimmers at the public portion of the beach, etc.), add a dock, and upgrade the striping and compliance signs throughout while maintaining handicap access and avoiding the PLAWCS lift station at the site. Funding for public access projects comes from boat/trailer registrations and gas tax money.
Mr. Russell will be our guest at the annual Pike Lake Association banquet where he will elaborate on these plans and provide an update of current progress at the landing.
