Dredging Part of Ocean City Boat Ramp Project

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan joined Maryland Department of Natural Resources Secretary Mark Belton and Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan two days ago to officially open the public 64th Street Boat Ramp.

The boating industry is incredibly important to our state; it supports thousands of jobs and contributes $2 billion to our state economy,” said Governor Hogan. “We are committed to doing everything we can to expand opportunities for Marylanders and visitors to appreciate all that the coastal bays, the Chesapeake Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean have to offer.

This joint state and local project was completed before the start of the 2017 boating season through a partnership between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and Town of Ocean City.

The department’s Waterway Improvement Fund provided 50 percent grant funding for construction of the parking area, and a 100 percent grant for dredging. An additional $200,000 will help extend the channel from 64th Street into Assawoman Bay.

The Waterway Improvement Fund was established to finance projects and activities that develop, maintain or promote Maryland’s boating infrastructure and waterways. Since its creation in 1966, the fund has provided more than $300 million toward over 4,500 projects at more than 400 boating facilities across the state.
