Road reopens to Brule River landing

Body: 

The boat landing at the mouth of the Bois Brule River on Lake Superior in the Brule River State Forest has reopened.

High Lake Superior water levels and wave action had caused the road leading to the boat landing to erode, causing its closure last month. Temporary road stabilization work has allowed the road to reopen.

The road is narrowed to one lane, but visitors are now able to access the boat launch, which is a popular take-out for people who have paddled the river to its mouth at Lake Superior.
