As of today, May 30, 2019, the Abel Lake Boat Ramp is reopening after safety and road improvements were made to the property. Upon closing the parking area last week, County officials have finished paving the entrance to the parking area along with working with VDOT to remove and clear trees and brush to improve the sightlines along the road. This project was completed to improve the safety and visibility at the entrance to aid in the prevention of further accidents.
