State closes Green River ramp due to concrete damage

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources says the Old Eastwood Ferry Boat Ramp on the Green River in Webster County has closed because of damage to the concrete.

A recent drop in the river level made damage to the last several feet of the ramp apparent.

The ramp is known locally as the Sebree Boat Ramp. It is about 2 ½ miles east of Sebree.

The damage includes broken concrete, exposed steel reinforcing bars and significant holes. The agency said it closed the ramp because of the public safety issue and is assessing repair options. No timetable is set for the ramp’s reopening.
