Ashley Ferry Boat Ramp Closes for Dredging

The public boat access facility along the Connecticut River known as Ashley Ferry, in Claremont, N.H., will be closed next week due to the dredging operations, aimed to remove accumulated river silt at the ramp, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said. 

The closure will begin early in the morning on Monday, July 31, and the ramp is expected to reopen late on Thursday, August 3, 2017.

During at least the first two days, a turbidity curtain will be installed and remain in place, completely blocking the end of the ramp.

This equipment traps silt and clay floating in the water as a result of the dredging, preventing it from entering the main course of the river.

“For the remainder of the closure period, Fish and Game personnel will be operating earth-moving equipment to regrade the parking area adjacent to the ramp,” said the official announcement.

New Hampshire’s Public Boat Access Program is funded through boat registration fees and federal Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration funds.
