The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is announcing the reopening of a facility at Sanchris Lake State Park. The West Boat Ramp area has been completely redone.  Improvements include a larger dock, and a new ramp which extends farther into the water for safer launching. There's also a reconfigured parking lot, improved lighting and toilet facilities, and a new access road. The renovations also provide easier access for the handicapped.

 The boat ramp, which is near Rochester, will reopen to the public Friday (10-03).
