Yankee Hill WMA access road project has begun

A project to move the west entrance to Yankee Hill Wildlife Management Area along Southwest 56th Street in Lancaster County has begun.

The entrance to the road that leads to the boat ramp will be moved slightly north from its current location. It will connect with the old access road further inside the WMA.

Access to the boat ramp will remain open, but users of the area should be aware of construction traffic while entering and exiting the area.

The new access road will alleviate problems created by frequent flooding at the current entrance.

The project should be completed by the end of the year. The old access road will be closed by next spring.
