After receiving all necessary approvals and permits, construction of new municipal marina in the City of Quinte West has begun.
The proposed marina, located at Bayshore Park, adjacent to City Hall will include 380 boat slips for both seasonal and transient use and will provide new public waterfront access. The construction of the marina will require the dredging of the area occupied by the marina to an elevation of 72.2 metres; the construction of shoreline protection; the installation of floating breakwater and floating docks.
The dredging operation and shoreline reconstruction works that started a few days ago will last for approximately 10 weeks, until the end of September, 2014.
During the construction period, public access to portions of the waterfront will be prohibited. Haulage routes will also be in effect during the period of the dredging operation.
