LANSING - The Village Creek public boat ramp, south of Lansing, has reopened with new improvements. The ramp was closed for construction July 5 through the first week of October.

Improvements included grading and paving the roadway and boat ramp parking, installing a vault restroom, building sidewalks and adding ramp extensions to improve ramp access during low water conditions.

The project was a joint project between Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries and State Parks Bureaus and the Marine Fuel Tax program. The area is managed through an agreement with Allamakee County Conservation.
