Big Rock boat ramp will be open as usual this summer.

Upgrade temporarily postponed – City to coordinate with highway project

Concerns about the potential environmental impact of the proposed re-design of the Big Rock boat ramp have temporarily postponed this project.

The City will use the additional time to fine-tune the proposed boat ramp design and coordinate this work with the future highway upgrade to minimize the amount of time the ramp would be inaccessible during these two construction projects.

April 12, 2017 News Release 

Please note:

On June 23, 2017 from 9:30am until 12:30pm the ramp will be temporarily closed. Users are directed to use alternate launches during this time.


Please contact the project team at if you have any questions or concerns.
