The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has closed its Milepost 8 water access site on the Yakima River in Kittitas County. The site is closed through Nov. 15 for construction, said a department news release.

A department crew is working with heavy equipment at the site to improve the boat launch and add a disabled-accessible toilet, paved parking lot and nature trail.

The work is funded by a $238,000 state lands development grant from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office, the release said.

Other water-access sites in the Yakima River Canyon remain open, including two managed by the department. Information about all the department’s water access sites in south-central Washington is available at .
