The Moody Boat Launch will be closed April 6 through May 20 for improvements, reports Flagler County.
According to the county officials, the scheduled upgrade will enhance the launch’s usability in a number of ways.
“The new system provides for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance, minimizes docking difficulties caused by fluctuating tides, and new lighting will promote boater safety and security,” said Heidi Petito, Director of General Services.
The closure includes the Moody Boat Launch, the parking area, restroom, and dockage on the Matanzas River.
The scope of work includes dredging 1,650 yards of silt from the launch basin, thus improving navigability. The adjacent wooden docks will be replaced with an aluminum floating dock and gangway system.
Moody Boat Launch provides public access to the Intracoastal on the east shore, just south of SR100. The closest alternative boat launches are located at Herschel King Park on the west side of the river at 1000 Grady Prather Jr. Cove, Palm Coast, and Bing’s Landing on the east shore at 5862 N. Oceanshore Blvd. in Palm Coast.
