Sioux City Boat Ramp Closure
The City of Sioux City has begun removing additional sediment from the boat ramp located in Chris Larsen Park. Prior to the opening of the boat ramp this spring, the City removed 3,500 cubic yards of sediment to make the ramp accessible to boats. Due to the current low water levels along with the prediction of further drops in the Missouri River levels, access in the boat ramp has become limited.
With the river levels being close to those seen in the winter, it is necessary for the removal of additional sediment to make the ramp more readily accessible. The Contractor removing the sediment estimates the work to take five days and anticipates being fully open early next week. The removed sediment will be piled in the park for dewatering and removed later for disposal. While the Contractor is working, the ramp will be closed for public safety.
