Park Place Marina to Get New Breakwater

Park Place Marina is preparing to open for its first full boating season in May 2015 after undergoing a major $2 million renovation and expansion.

John S. Matricardi, P.E., KS Associates’ Director of Coastal Engineering Services, provided design, permitting, and construction engineering services for the project.

In addition to offering public docking spaces, the marina is remodeling of the former Ladd’s Marina, offering nearly twice the amount of docking space. Floating docks have replaced deteriorated steel crib and fixed docks, which are safer and require less maintenance.

The project also included a new 10-foot-wide, double sheet pile breakwater. The breakwater extends 266 feet northeast into Put-In-Bay Harbor and wraps around the face of the marina toward the east.

The breakwater is designed to absorb the impact of waves, resulting in a more comfortable and safe journey into the marina and to the docks.
