Warner's Bayou Boat Ramp closure

Bradenton, Florida -- Manatee County has announced Warner’s Bayou Boat Ramp, 5900 Riverview Blvd., will be closed for about five months beginning March 26 while crews make extensive repairs and renovations to the aging launch.

The county says the renovations will greatly increase the life span and functionality of the facility while reducing maintenance needs.

The boat ramp, floating dock and fixed docks will be entirely replaced and upgraded. The northern dock will be extended to allow additional mooring. There are also plans to add a new restroom and fish cleaning tables with running water. The parking lot will be resurfaced with additional parking spots in the lot south of the parking ramp and landscaping will be improved throughout the facility.

During the closure, boaters may use alternatives such as Kingfish Boat Ramp at 752 Manatee Ave. W., Holmes Beach; the Palma Sola Causeway ramp at 9000 Manatee Ave. W.; or the Riverside Park Ramp at 833 Riverside Drive in Palmetto.

“Warner’s Bayou is a very popular boat launch, and we’d like boaters to know that the inconvenience of the closure is something that we are keenly aware of,” Alan Lai Hipp, Manatee County Marine Resources Coordinator said in a release. “We hope local boaters will understand the need for these improvements and are patient as the renovations are performed. I think they’ll be very pleased with the finished product.”
