U.S. Army Corps of Engineers temporarily closes Monterey Boat Ramp due to roadway failure

Published March 2, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas – The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers at Sam Rayburn Reservoir has temporarily closed the Monterey Boat Ramp due to safety issues caused by a culvert failure impacting the ramps access road.

This decision was made over the weekend following a team of Corps personnel’s attempt to make immediate repairs but the culvert failure required a complete replacement and not all materials were immediately available for the repair. A maintenance crew from the Vicksburg District is scheduled to make those repairs early next week. With no additional major rain events or unforeseen complications the roadway and boat ramp should be open by about March 12.

For more information, please contact the Sam Rayburn Reservoir Office at 409-384-5716.
