HENDERSON, KY, July 25, 2016– Hays Boat Ramp located in the City of Henderson’s Hays Park (near Park Field) is closed until further notice until repairs can be made to the boat launch area.
After an extremely rainy July, the Ohio River is finally at the lowest level it’s been during the boating season and has revealed some rip rap that has washed out and created an obstruction to boat traffic.
City of Henderson Public Works Director Brian Williams said repairs will need to be made. The public will be notified when the boat ramp is available for use.
Meanwhile, boaters can use the ramps at the foot of Second Street and Third Street on the downtown Henderson riverfront.
