For those who spend their summer weekends on the water at Navajo Lake State Park, delays on the boat ramp should be expected, but for reasons avid lake-goers will love.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is funding a $2.5 million project to improve entry road and boat ramp access to Navajo Lake.

Park Manager Doug Secrist spoke with Inside Durango TV on the new park makeover.

“Well, I think anybody that is familiar with Navajo, that’s come out here before realizes or knows how congested this area can get right at the top of the boat ramp, because we have so many boats coming and leaving and campground activity in the area as well. So this project  is designed to create some bypass routes and some turn lanes to allow a more efficient flow of traffic.”
