Boat dock improvement scheduled at Hells Gate State Park

LEWISTON, ID - Monday, the Nez Perce county commission approved a motion which will impact boaters in the region.

$41,850 will be used to re-construct the dock system at Hells Gate State Park. The money is provided by an improvement grant from the State of Idaho. The current dock was built in 1974, and Hells Gate Park officials say this is a necessary project because the dock has become a safety hazard to the public.

Park officials also said that the construction should be completed before summertime.
