NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — The concrete boat ramps located at Birdwood, West Brady, Brady and West Gothenburg Wildlife Management Areas along Interstate 80 (I-80) are open for use over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The ramps were temporarily closed due to low water conditions and erosion at the end of the ramps that could damage boat trailers.
Crushed concrete was added at the end of the ramps to help the erosion issues, but low water levels still persist at some sites.
Funding for the I-80 Lake projects is being provided by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commissions Angler Access Program and the Federal Aid for Sport Fish Restoration Fund.
