Warner's Bayou boat ramp reopens in Manatee

MANATEE -- After a less than two month closure, Warner's Bayou boat ramp has reopened.

The boat ramp at 5900 Riverview Blvd. closed in mid-March so a shell-and-dirt parking lot could be upgraded to concrete.

The $264,003 parking lot resurfacing was funded by the West Coast Inland Navigation District and the county Boating Improvement Fund. Warner's Bayou was also closed for six months in 2013 while the boat ramp, floating dock, fixed docks and seawalls were replaced and upgraded.
