Access to popular boat ramp blocked by road work

For about a week drivers won't be able to access a popular boat ramp in St. Martin. Starting Monday, part of the road leading to the Fort Bayou Boat Ramp will be closed.

That's so crews can install metal rods under the roadway to reinforce the new bulkheads on both sides of the road. The workers will also repave the road.

This work is part of a $700 thousand project expected to be completed by November.
