DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife to close Phillips Landing boat ramp for reconstruction

DOVER – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today the anticipated nearly six-month closure of the Phillips Landing Boat Ramp west of Laurel for reconstruction and expansion of the boat ramp beginning Monday, Nov. 12 and continuing through April 30, 2019, weather permitting. The portion of the parking area closest to the boat ramp used by the contractor for construction will be closed during this time, with the remaining portion of the parking lot open to the public for parking and bank fishing access.

The project includes expanding the current two-lane boat ramp into a three-lane boat ramp with new courtesy docks, repaving the parking lot, installing a kayak launching dock, and other site upgrades.

Boaters can use other nearby Division of Fish & Wildlife boat ramps located in Laurel and Seaford to access Broad Creek and the Nanticoke River.
