Boat ramps closed for repaving
The Army Corps of Engineers has announced the immediate start of projects to re-pave Lake Hartwell boat ramps. One is the ramp at Double Springs, near Townville in Anderson County. The other is the Jenkins Ferry boat ramp in Stephens County, Georgia. The parks remain open during the preliminary part of the re-paving, but will close temporarily during the treatment and paving. Boaters displaced are encouraged to use nearby ramps to launch.
