Monroe County Completes Tavernier Project

Monroe County has just completed repair works on the dock next to the boat ramp at Harry Harris Park in Tavernier.

The dock was stripped down to the pylons, the old decking was removed and the support structure was repaired.

The County also is working on two boat ramp projects.

On June 20th, construction work will begin on a $112,525 project to repair the County boat ramp at the end of State Road 4A on Little Torch Key. The ramp will be closed during construction, which is expected to be completed on September 18.

The Gulf side ramp will have a cofferdam built around it so water can be pumped out to repair the concrete and work on the erosion around the ramp.

“A lot of time boaters will pull in and don’t realized that by running their motors to pull their boat onto their boat trailers they are eroding the natural sea bed,Monroe County project manager, Cary Knight, said.

Riprap will be put in place to help with erosion. Texture grooves will be cut into the ramp to help with traction. The grooves also will be at an angle, designed to self-clean.

The new ramp will be safer, with less chance of boaters backing too far down the ramp at low tide.
