Somers Point’s New Transient Marina Project on Track

Construction of a new bayfront marina at the end of Higbee Avenue in Somers Point is underway with completion expected in the summer of 2019.

Wickberg Marina Contracting, Inc. of Belford, NJ recently completed the dredging phase of the project, and Walters Marine Construction of Ocean View, NJ has begun construction on the marina itself.

The marina will feature 20 transient boat slips as well as slips for tour boats and emergency vessels. It will also feature electric, water, and pump out facilities for transient boaters.

We are constantly working to improve our vibrant waterfront in Somers Point. Last year, we completed the renovations to the successful Gateway Theater; and this year we will open the new Somers Point Marina,” said Greg Sykora, Somers Point Economic Development Advisory Commission (EDAC) Chair.

Various grants have been secured by the city to contribute to the cost of the marina. A $550,000 grant from the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation assisted in funding the needed dredging, and a $1.45 million National Boating Infrastructure Grant is being used to build the marina.

The city is working on a plan to dredge the entire Bay Avenue waterfront to provide for safe boating access and to allow for additional marinas to operate.
