Anyone heard when the construction will be done and the ramp is going to be opened back up?

Any idea of what the new boat ramp will look like....how many lanes, will it be shorter than the previous one, etc?

It will be 28' wide, so two lanes, and will have a turn around to make it less distance to back down. Supposed to have a dock along the north side. According to the city's facebook account, they are waiting on TPWD to finalize the report on recommendations to reduce the siltation at the end of the ramp. So it will likely be months before they do any construction work.

Buddy of mine is slaying the bass from his kayak out there. Im sure it will be nice when its done. I bet the waterfront homeowners hope it stays closed.

Yep and sounds like job that any normal construction company could get done in weeks. I have heard from people who have fished it all the time that its a budget issue. They decided to re-do something for the better but didn't estimate or figure in costs for the annual budget. What ever the reason, its stupid that its taking that long.

I called the city of Alvarado and they said they were waiting for a signature from TXPWD and that the ramp could be completed by October but they also have up to 180 days to complete

It’s fishing REALLY good right now! They haven’t made any progress in a while. At this rate it might be open by October 2019.

What was wrong with the old ramp? I launched my kayak there many times. It was narrow, but only on Saturday and Sunday was there any kind of waiting line. Plenty of parking. No different than other lakes. Sounds like uninformed politicians listening to the powerful and influential constituents. It never stops. IslandJim

The old ramp had large potholes and was collapsing at the end of ramp. It wasn't really noticable until the water dropped about 2 feet low and then trailers would start falling off the end of the ramp due to the prop washout hole.

Apparently if you are determined enough, you can launch a boat off of what is left of the ramp. Had a friend take pictures of a guy who launched a bass boat this weekend. His back tires on the truck were inches from falling off the ramp. The boat trailer just fell in the hole of where the ramp used to be. Don't know how he got the trailer back out. It was at least a 3 foot drop off last time I was there.

Buddy of mine caught a 6 pounder yesterday in a kayak. Without the boat pressure it seems to be doing good. I bet the locals love that ramp not being open.
