The Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) has begun renovating the White’s Bridge (Lonnie White) Public Boat Ramp on Harris Reservoir in Randolph County, Alabama. The renovation will extend the length of the launching slab to allow for better and safer loading/unloading of vessels during winter water levels.
The facility will remain closed until approximately May 2020, when it will temporarily reopen for summer. The boat ramp will remain open until the lake's water level begins to fall below its full pool elevation of 793 feet in early October. The renovation is expected to be completed during the 2020-21 winter lake drawdown. When the renovation is complete, the facility will reopen for use at all water levels.
ADCNR operates five additional boat ramps on Harris Reservoir. For more information about ADCNR public boating access areas, visit http://boatramps.dcnr.alabama.gov/ or call the WFF Fisheries Section at (334) 242-3471.
This project was funded by the Sport Fish Restoration Program, which is supported through excise taxes on the sale of outboard motor fuel, fishing equipment and the sale of state fishing licenses.
