Canoe ramps to open by the end of the week

Posted: Updated:
People in the panhandle who canoe will soon have another reason to head outdoors.

Scottsbluff city officials will be installing two canoe launch pads along the North Platte River this week. One will be placed at the end of fifth avenue, and the other will be installed behind Riverside park. Work is only being done on the fifth avenue location. The Riverside location is ready to go.

Assistant city manager Nathan Johnson says this project should be completed by the end of the week, but they are working on adding more ramps to surrounding areas.

"Scotts Bluff county tourism is working with us, the county, and other entities to provide additional boat ramps to where there could be a trail of canoeing from the city of Scottsbluff down to Minatare or down to another portion within the county," says Johnson.

Scottsbluff county tourism granted the city $1,000 to help with the project.
