Seattle City Light is working to restore access to Ross Lake that was cut off by a rockslide in March that destroyed the landing dock at the east end of Diablo Lake.

Granite Construction has been hired to remove additional loose rock from the hillside above the rock slide in order to stabilize it, and make some preparations for a replacement landing dock at the east end of Diablo Lake. City Light will build new dock anchor blocks on shore, and then move an existing concrete dock from the west end of the lake to serve the east end. One of the existing dock facilities at the west end of Lake Diablo will be used until a new wooden dock can be built sometime this summer.

The concrete replacement dock should be in place by the week of June 14, weather permitting.

Ross Lake Resort opens for the season June 10. Until the replacement dock is in place, City Light will use smaller boats to ferry visitors to the National Park Service’s landing on the east side of the lake at no cost. Regular service with the fisherman’s ferry will resume once the replacement dock is in place for $20 round-trip or $10 one-way.
