The new boat launch and pavilion is entering final stages of construction.
Weather delays and subcontractor coordination issues are delaying announcement of an open date, but the Port is hoping to reach a decision in the next few weeks. The contractor, Glen Lege Construction Company, Inc., managed to turn an overgrown abandoned property into a facility that will benefit the community for years to come.
The total cost of the project is $4 million. It has had starts and stops over the years but is now at 90 percent completion. The critical final elements such as the installation of water, communications, and the final element, asphalting of the pavilion parking and roadways, are drawing near. Weather has also been a factor lately as afternoon showers are slowing some of the work.
The Port expects to make an open date announcement as soon as the project reaches substantial completion. The grand opening, however, has been set for September 6, 2014. Details on the grand opening are forthcoming.
