I'm looking for the closest ramp to the ben franklin bridge that can be used after dark. I have used the one at the commodore barry but it closes after dusk. I see the linden ave ramp. Is this one open all hours? Any problems with tides? Any help would be great.

don't know what you're running, but there's one under the betsy ross, not too far if your boat can move well. at the end of derousse ave. You can get to derousse from 130 to westfield or off river road. Only thing is low tides are rough, even for my 14'.

Beach hill in green bank is where I always launched to go to tweeter. Its a free "ramp" but is all dirt so you need 4x4. Its supposed to be closed after dusk but out of a hundred or so late night trips I only had one time the gate was locked when I got back. I cut the lock, the cops were waiting up the top of the hill for me. They said all I had to do if I got back late again and it was locked call the local PD and they would come unlock it (tell them you had boat problems).
