OROVILLE, CA – The Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced today that work to create a new pedestrian path will temporarily restrict public access to the Low Water Access Trail at Lime Saddle Marina on Lake Oroville from January 19 until 25 while construction is underway.


The Marina will remain open and be accessible to visitors by boat during this time. Pedestrian access to the Marina had previously been restricted during weekdays since December 10 to ensure public safety when construction began. This work will ensure safe and reliable pedestrian access to the Marina.


The public is advised that Lime Saddle Boat Ramp is currently inaccessible due to lake levels. Construction is anticipated to be completed by early February. 


This project is within the Lake Oroville State Recreation Area, which is managed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation.  This $800,000 project is part of the approximately $30 million in planned recreational improvements at Lake Oroville that are scheduled for construction by DWR in 2018 and 2019.
