Temporary Boat Ramp Closure
May 5, 2016
The boat ramp at the Washburn Marina will close on Monday, May 9th, 2016 until mid-June. This is to allow for repairs and for the construction of additional amenities for both boat ramp and marina patrons. When the work is completed, boat ramp users will have new restrooms available, new piers, an improved slope for the ramp, a boat wash station, a fish cleaning station, and improved parking. There will also be additional guest dockage for visitors to the Washburn Marina and the community.
The Washburn Marina and the Harbor Commission realize that closing the boat ramp for a month will be an inconvenience to boaters; nonetheless, the repairs and amenities being put in place will be a significant improvement to the area. While this ramp is closed, some boaters may be able to utilize the West End Park boat ramp. There is approximately two feet of water depth at the end of the concrete ramp at West End Park. Boaters are not to power load boats at the ramp, as this creates a mound of sediment which restricts access to the ramp.
As updates to the Boat Ramp Project are available, the information will be posted on the City of Washburn website and be available at the Washburn Marina.
