DOVER, Del. – DNREC announced the Augustine Beach Boat Ramp will be periodically closed starting Wed., June 12 through Thursday, July 11 for maintenance dredging of the boat ramp access channel.
DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife says during this time period, the boat ramp will be closed from 8 a.m. each Monday until 5 p.m. each Thursday.
This also includes the adjacent beach located on the south side of the existing rock groin
