A new boat ramp has been installed at the Highway 89 Bridge fishing access site on the Yellowstone River east of Livingston.
The new ramp extends farther into the river at a more gradual slope than the previous ramp. This will make the site more user friendly for boaters, especially during periods of low flows.
The entire project was completed using capital improvement funds from Region 3 of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
FWP continues to remind boaters who plan on taking out at the Highway 89 Bridge FAS to use caution in avoiding the bridge pylons just upstream from the boat ramp. It was at that location last year that a mother and son drowned after their boat struck the bridge abutment.
