Government Bay Boat Ramp at Garrison Dam Closed starting March 27th

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District
Published March 22, 2023

The road leading to the Government Bay boat ramp at the junction with Missouri Drive in Riverdale, North Dakota will be temporarily closed beginning March 27 for boat ramp and bay maintenance scheduled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District.

Crews will be working over the next few weeks to improve lake access in anticipation of lower lake levels by removing siltation in the bay that has accrued as a result of past high-water events. As a safety measure, the road will be closed during the removal and transportation of the siltation to the uplands for dewatering.

No date has been determined for the reopening of the road, but the closure is expected to remain in effect for multiple weeks.
