Ballard Park Boat Ramps and Docks to Close July 15 for Six Months

Post Date:07/03/2019 4:33 PM

The boat ramps and docks at Ballard Park will close on July 15 for upgrades and repairs needed due to damage from Hurricane Matthew. The ramps and docks will remain closed until January 2020, pending good weather conditions. A portion of the parking lot and drive aisle will also be closed, and the open portion of the drive aisle will change to two-way traffic during the closure. 

The work includes replacement of the existing boat ramp and two wooden docks with concrete piles and marine grade composite deck materials. Due to state mandated requirements, no night-time work will be allowed. The City of Melbourne has contracted Construct Company Inc. to do the work.
