The City of Newport Beach, CA, has announced that the Grand Opening Celebration of Marina Park will take place on December 5.
This redevelopment project included dredging of 68,000 cubic yards of soil to construct the 23-slip transient vessel boating marina with improved launch areas and in-slip pump out stations.
Dutra Construction Co. installed hundreds of stone columns deep into the soil to protect the site against seismic activity.
The marina was dredged and yielding sand that was distributed among various Newport Beach locations such as China Cove and Newport Pier.
Marina Park was designed by landscape architect Rabben/Herman and features a unique public recreational marine facility on a 10.5-acre waterfront infill site.
The entire project originally expected to be completed by spring 2016.
