The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), which is in the process of performing road work to repair storm damage from this past winter, will open the Slab Creek Boat Ramp Road for the coming Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The work, which started April 24 and is anticipated to be completed on May 30, is being done to widen damaged narrow road locations and add drainage improvements to better control storm water run-off.

“We know Memorial Day weekend is a popular time for residents to utilize the boat ramp,” said Scott Flake, SMUD’s director of power generation. “This construction is being done for the community’s safety and benefit. So we’re happy to be far enough along in the repairs to safely open the road for a few days so families can recreate in the area.” A crew of about a half dozen workers will resume the work on Tuesday, May 27 and conduct the work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on various days. The work may require some blasting to remove large overhanging boulders.

The U.S. Forest Service has requested SMUD close the boat ramp at Slab Creek Reservoir Access Road during the repair process. The U.S. Forest Service will determine when the boat ramp road will be opened following completion of the work, or if conditions allow safe weekend access.
