Having estimated they serve more than 86,000 vehicles and more than 321,000 visitors every year, the Bureau of Land Management is moving to repair seven boat ramps in Salmon River country, from Shorts Bar down to Pine Bar, the local BLM office announced last Friday, Jan. 26.

The decision, signed by Cottonwood-based field manager Richard White, advances a plan the Free Press first reported in September 2015.

An environmental assessment released along with the decision describes the following:

“The BLM would use either cable concrete blocks or poured concrete or a combination of both to complete the projects depending on the situation at each ramp and available funding,” White wrote in his decision.
