Merritt Boat Ramp

Once again, spreading a news item.  This will be of interest to some of you:

Work on Main Ramp Area at Merritt SRA now set to begin June 27

A repair project at the Main Ramp Area at Merritt Reservoir State Recreation Area has been pushed back slightly. Users of that area should be aware of repairs there that will result in temporary closures.

Originally scheduled for June 22-24, the contractor now has rescheduled the work for June 27-29.

Water draining from the pull-through near the ramp area has caused erosion undermining the sidewalk attached to the boat ramp, and immediate repairs are needed.

The boat ramp will be closed temporarily while concrete deliveries are being made. These closures will be brief, and the ramp will open once the delivery is complete.

Boaters may arrive at the ramp and find their boat launching is delayed. Once the work is complete, repaired areas will be marked with traffic cones while the materials are setting. Visitors should not disturb these areas.

Other boat ramps available at Merritt are at Beeds Landing and Powderhorn.

Funding for the repairs is made possible through the Capital Maintenance Funds and Sportfish Restoration Motorboat Access Funds.
