MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama will soon close a Mobile River boat ramp for work to make it easier to use when the river is low. 

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources says crews will remove silt from the Mount Vernon Public Boat Ramp launching basin starting June 22. The repairs are expected to take two to three weeks.

The department says that for more information and the locations of alternate public boating access areas, visit or call the WFF Fisheries Section at (334) 242-3471.
