The City of Bonney Lake’s boat launch at Allan Yorke Park will be closed to the public starting at 10 p.m. on Sunday, June 17 and will reopen at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19. We apologize for this inconvenience as this closure is necessary as part of the City’s Capital Improvement Project, Lake Tapps Trestle Repair Project.
To provide adequate space for the contractor to deliver the sections of the barge for assembly, the City of Bonney Lake’s Ball Park #4 parking lot will be restricted on Monday, June 18 only, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. to accommodate the trucks that will be delivering the sections of the barge.

About the project:
The portion of the City’s water and sewer systems that serves the Inlet Island area uses a trestle bridge to extend the system across the entry flume to Lake Tapps. This trestle has standing pilings in the lake’s water and after many years the pilings are showing severe age and are needed to be replaced. The City has awarded a contract with Rognlin’s, Inc., to replace the aging pilings. As part of the project, the contractor is required to build a barge with a crane to complete the work. The contractor will build and launch their barge at the City’s boat launch. Once constructed, the barge will be moved into the location at the City’s trestle to complete the work. The contractor has scheduled the construction of the barge over a two day period. Once the work is completed, the contractor will return the barge to the City’s boat launch and dissemble the barge.
