CLAREMONT (AP) — Repairs are being made to public boat ramps in Claremont and Alton.

The Claremont ramp, known as Ashley Ferry along the Connecticut River, will be closed to accommodate dredging to remove accumulated river silt on the ramp. The closure starts late Tuesday, July 5. The ramp is expected to reopen on Friday, July 8.

During that time, a plastic shield placed into the water will block the end of the ramp.

The ramp known as Downing's Landing in Alton, which provides access to Alton Bay and Lake Winnipesaukee, will be closed for repairs starting late Sunday, July 17. The ramp is expected to be closed for two weeks and will reopen on Friday, July 29.
