MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - A public boat ramp on Hobbs Island Road near Ditto Landing is now closed after structural issues made it harder for boats to use.

"We're going to replace the entire ramp, add some new paving there, and some lighting at the ramp and at the parking lots," said Houston Matthews, assistant county engineer.

Tennessee Valley Authority is providing more than $20,000 to provide the material for the project, as well as extra material to repair ramp damage in Triana.

Commissioner Eddie Sisk's office is handling the installation.
