Last public boat ramp on Lake Travis closes

The last public boat ramp still operating at drought-affected Lake Travis has closed due to dropping water levels. Thursday was the first full day of the closure of the ramp at the Mansfield Dam Recreation Area.

The Lower Colorado River Authority in Austin says barriers have been erected to block access to the ramp. The boat launching point was shut down after staffers Wednesday discovered dislodged rocks and scrape marks from trailers on some submerged rocks.

LCRA says the boat ramp at Mansfield Dam was the last of 12 public boat ramps that had been usable due to falling levels at Lake Travis.
