— SELINSGROVE — Work to repair the South Front Street boat launch is underway, two years after the borough was forced to close it to the public.

G&R Charles Excavating, of Port Charles, has begun the reconstruction work on the Isle of Que.

The boat launch was built by the borough of Selinsgrove in 2008 with an $88,000 grant from the state Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. It was closed in April 2011 after it failed to pass inspection and was deemed a safety hazard.

Reconstruction was delayed as the state Department of Environmental Protection intervened and required the borough to obtain permits before work could begin.
