Linn County will receive a $99,010 grant from the Oregon State Marine Board to purchase precast concrete boat ramp planks for the Stayton Bridge access site.
The county will match the grant with $127,990 for a project total of $227,000.
The area has been closed for three years due to damage caused by 2015 flooding on the North Santiam River.
The project can only be done from July 15 to Aug. 15, so purchasing the planks earlier will allow contractors time to maximize the work schedule.
In other action taken during the Marine Board’s Jan. 22 meeting at Clackamas Community College:
• The board adopted rules to allow electric motors on boats at Turner Lake in Marion County, with a speed limit of 5 mph.
• Josephine County will receive a $175,000 grant to purchase property next to Lanthrop Landing on the Rogue River. The total project cost will be $350,600 and will include access improvements.
• The city of Gladstone will get a $133,000 grant to dredge the Meldrum bar at milepost 24 on the Willamette River.
• The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department will receive a $60,000 grant, to be combined with a $21,500 cash match, to install a debris deflection boom at Bullards Beach State Park. High winds and coastal storms often deposit large amounts of debris at the site.
