A major construction project is underway to build a new bridge at the end of Cass Rd (near Keystone Rd). This is the site of the Boardman Dam that will be removed next Summer (2017) as part of the dams removal/river restoration project. This section of the river will be closed for that phase of the project also.

From March 28 through August 2016 the Boardman River will be closed from the Lone Pine launch to below Sabin Dam. Some trails will also be closed.

All paddlers must exit the river before or at Lone Pine on Keystone Rd. The next access is on Cass Rd at the Sabin Dam launch downriver (at the Nature Center).

The Boardman Pond Trail and part of the Beaver Pond Trail are also closed as the parking areas will be used for equipment storage.
