BENTON – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Rend Lake closed the North Marcum boat ramp for maintenance Wednesday night.

North Marcum boat ramp and the adjacent cove will be temporarily closed to all foot and boat traffic through late November for dredging operations to maintain and improve future access.

The effected areas will be posted with closure signs for foot traffic and buoys lines by water. Dredging reduces sedimentation deposits that can cause navigation issues during low water events.

For further information, contact the Rend Lake Project Office/Visitor Center at 618-724-2493 or email at RendInfo-MVS@usace.army.mil.

Updates and changes can be found on the Rend Lake Project Office/Visitor Center Facebook page.
