No boat launch this year at Coon Rapids dam

  • Updated: March 2, 2013 - 6:34 PM

Boaters looking to get on the Mississippi River at the Coon Rapids dam boat launch will have to launch elsewhere this year. The dam is undergoing a $16 million upgrade to bolster its ability to stop the upstream advance of invasive Asian carp. The project will cut off access to the river from the boat ramp until 2014. Alternate launch sites just upstream are at Champlin and Anoka.
