Shelter Island Grant Awarded

The California Division of Boating and Waterways has awarded the Port of San Diego a $6.1 million grant from the Harbors and Watercraft Revolving Fund for the Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility Improvements Project.

The grant will help fund the estimated $9.5 million needed for the project.

The project entails improving the launch ramp’s basin by enlarging and deepening the maneuvering area, replacing the worn-out launch ramp, increasing the lengths of the boarding floats, providing a concrete drop-off area for kayaks, and bringing the restroom to current ADA (Americans with Disability Act) standards.

The Shelter Island Boat Launching Facility was constructed in the mid-1950s with a one-lane concrete launch ramp. Its last major improvement occurred in the mid-1970s with the construction of the existing 10-lane boat launching ramp.

When completed, the new launch facility basin will be 82 percent larger. The new entry/exit point will increase from its current 25 feet to 60 feet. New walkways and public viewing platforms will be added and a separate area for hand-launched watercraft will be added.

The Port of San Diego expects to solicit bids for the project in the fall of 2016. Construction is anticipated to take place between December 2016 and December 2017.
