Spanaway Park boat ramp and Bresemann Blvd. to close for construction

The public boat ramp in Spanaway Park will be closed Sept. 15 to Oct. 24 so crews can replace the pavement in the ramp’s parking area with pervious pavement that will help filter out contaminants from stormwater before it enters the stormwater system. Bresemann Boulevard – the road through the park – will be closed to through traffic starting Sept. 15 while parking areas along the road are replaced with the pervious pavement.
