The new public boat ramp at 64th Street in Ocean City, MD, was officially opened earlier this week, according to the city’s latest announcement.
The opening ceremony took place on May 1 after an ambitious construction schedule with a target date for completion before the start of the summer season, The Maryland Coast Dispatch reports.
This very important project was completed through a partnership with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
The DNR fully funded the dredging work needed to accommodate the new ramp along with 50 percent of the site work. The channels around the new ramp have been dredged to a draw of around three feet at low tide, according to The Dispatch.
The new boat ramp at 64th Street will replace the town’s only other existing public access boat ramp in the Little Salisbury area.
