LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Missouri River boaters will have two new ramps to launch from by next spring in northeast Nebraska.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says one will be built at Ponca State Park, the other at Mulberry Bend Wildlife Management Area.

The project site at Elk Point Bend on the northwest edge of Ponca State Park will be closed to public access.

An existing ramp at Mulberry Bend that was damaged by the 2011 flooding will be replaced by a longer concrete ramp, and new bank stabilization will be installed. A small, temporary launch site will be available at Mulberry Bend during construction, but parking will be limited.

Construction at both sites is expected to be finished by early March.
