Alabama: Harris Reservoir Ramp to Close for Renovations

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) is about to break ground on a launching slab renovation at White’s Bridge (Lonnie White) public boat ramp on Harris Reservoir in Randolph County. The renovation will extend the length of the launching slab to allow for better and safer loading and unloading of vessels during Harris Reservoir’s winter pool water elevations.

The renovation will require the closure of the facility starting during the week of February 16-22, 2020. The facility will remain closed until renovations are completed, which is estimated to be in April 2020. ADCNR operates five other boat ramps on Harris Reservoir. Please see the link below for information and locations of alternative launching locations.

Anglers and boaters who would like to obtain more information about this and other public boating access areas provided by ADCNR should visit: http://boatramps.dcnr.alabama.gov/ or call the Fisheries Section at 334-242-3471.

Funding for this project was obtained through the Sportfish Restoration Program, which is supported through excise taxes on the sale of outboard motor fuel and fishing equipment and through the sale of Alabama fishing licenses.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
