Boat Ramps On McKenzie River Re-open Friday

Brian Bull

Two boat ramps on the McKenzie River near Springfield will re-open Friday morning at 9 a.m.

Lane County officials say the river will be passable for boats but boaters are urged to use caution downstream from Hayden Bridge.

Crews have been cleaning up the river since an oil spill earlier this month. Most of the floating barriers that were place in the river have been removed but there is still some equipment in the water between Hayden Bridge and the mouth of the Mohawk River.

The Hayden Bridge boat ramp remains closed until further notice.

•    Bellinger Boat Ramp is located on Oak Point Road (off of Camp Creek Road)
•    Hayden Bridge Boat Ramp is located near the intersection of Hayden Bridge Road and Marcola Road
•    Hendricks Bridge Boat Ramp is located between mileposts 11 and 12 on Highway 126 east
•    Rodakowski Landing is located at the end of Harvest Lane, near Yolanda Avenue in Springfield
