Default No more Herron Bayou Boat Ramp

I see today they have filled in the flood damage from the big rain.
And laid sod from the pavement twenty feet deep.
No parking, no ramp, no nothing no more.
Maybe they will leave the dock.
But they have no parking spaces, all sod.


I guess the county decided to do that and just make all wait for the new ramp to be built at the mouth of Herron Bayou instead.

Did they ever get a chance to break ground on the new ramp before the flood?

I guess since the flood all the extra money will have to be spent making necessary repairs rather than building a new ramp.

Yup, I figure there are priority lists all over the place.

That grass won’t stop me. Once they level out the piles of sand between the sod and the water I think we’ll be good to go. I was hoping they would pave that entire area but I guess that’s not the case. My initial thought when I saw them laying the sod was that it was a mistake.

The Herron Bayou ramp area is owned by Florida or maybe the feds.
It is actually part of the U.S. 98 right-of-way.
The county was allowed to use it as a boat ramp.
A few years ago the county was looking into purchasing some parking space on the other side of Dog Track so the ramp could be improved.
The highway department said no your not going to do that.

You might have to plow thru some split rail fencing.
