HELENA – Construction on the Causeway Fishing Access Site in the Helena Valley has been suspended for a few weeks because of too much water in the parking area.

Work at the FAS on Hauser Reservoir has been ongoing for a few weeks, and a 16-foot by 16-foot shelter has been installed along with a new kiosk and two new sitting areas.

However, the recent wet weather has caused too much water in the parking area and led Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials to announce work would stop until the area dries up.

The FAS will be closed during the work stoppage. The pier at the FAS is still open, but the area with the latrine is not accessible.
