Project Summary

The handicapped accessible public boat ramp features six concrete launch lanes, four Full Float boarding docks and two Full Float courtesy docks. Additionally, there is a fully accessible, 8 ft wide boardwalk area designed into this project. Thanks to the Department of Natural Resources, boaters now have immediate access to the Delaware Bay, eliminating 15-20 minutes of no-wake-speed travel from the former ramp site. State Secretary Collin O’Mara called the project “... a recreational treasure that will allow current and future generations to enjoy the beautiful waters of Lewes. Further, this new facility is a model of sustainable practices that we must work to integrate into future building design.”
