CLAREMONT, NH– The public boat access facility along the Connecticut River known as Ashley’s Ferry Landing in Claremont will be closed to accommodate dredging to remove accumulated river silt on the ramp. The closure will begin late on Tuesday, July 5. The ramp is expected to reopen late on Friday July 8.
During the three days, a turbidity curtain (a plastic shield placed into the water) will be installed and remain in place, completely blocking the end of the ramp. This equipment traps silt and clay floating in the water as a result of the dredging, preventing it from entering the main course of the river. There will be no opportunity to launch or retrieve boats during this time period.
Also, the public boat ramp facility known as Downing’s Landing in Alton, NH, which provides access to Alton Bay and Lake Winnipesaukee, will be closed for repairs beginning late Sunday, July 17. The ramp is expected to be closed for two weeks and will reopen late on Friday, July 29.
