UPDATE (2/14/20, 10:45 A.M.) – The Lake Tyler and Lake Tyler boat ramps have been re-opened to the public after being temporarily closed due to the Wednesday floods.
Ramps were closed due to debris washed into the lakes from the rain.
WHITEHOUSE, Texas (KETK) – Rain has caused roads to flood and some have shut down across East Texas. Along with roads, Lake Gladewater and Lake Tyler have closed their boat ramps to the public until further notice.
The lakes are currently at an elevation of 376 feet MSL and are continuing to rise, according to the City of Tyler Utilities. Spillway elevation is at 375.5 feet MSL.
Ramps are being closed due to hazards resulting from debris washed into the lakes by recent rains and to reduce damage resulting from shoreline erosion.
In addition, the lakes are closed to boat traffic from lake residents.
