A contract for $343,850 was awarded last month by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to a State College construction company, clearing the way for construction of a new boat launch ramp for kayak and canoes on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
HRI Inc. will oversee construction of the facility in the Sproul State Forest District in Grugan Township, Clinton County.
The ramp will be situated between Hyner View State Park and Lock Haven.
A spring 2013 construction start is anticipated.
Another DCNR contract for $40,610 was awarded to Franks Electrical Construction Inc., of Leck Kill, for electrical repairs at the Moshannon State Forest District Office, Pine Township, Clearfield County.
