The area will be closed for approximately four days to accommodate public safety.  The boat ramp will be utilized as a staging area to demobilize work barge units used for the erosion protection project, that occurred in proximity to the South Fork Recreation Area. When demobilization is completed and the boat ramp is no longer needed to stage equipment, the area will re-open for public use.
