HENDERSON, Ky. – Repairs have been completed at Hays Boat Ramp located in the City of Henderson’s Hays Park (near Park Field) and it has reopened for boat launching.
The ramp had been closed for cleanup of debris that had washed into the launch area. The cleanup required a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
City of Henderson Public Works Director Brian Williams advises the boating public to use care when using any of the city’s boat ramps.
He said the downtown boat ramp area at Second and Third streets is scheduled to be dredged sometime this summer, and that the Public Works Department is doing what it can to clear mud, silt and debris from the land.
The dredging project at the Riverfront is awaiting a permit from the Corps.
