Construction of the Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility has made significant progress and is nearly complete. The Port of San Diego is pleased to announce that the boat launch will reopen to the public on Friday, December 21, 2018.
The contractor is anticipated to remain on site through January 2019 to complete items such as beach grading and general cleanup, but the work is not expected to impact the public’s use of the facility.
Once completed, the improvements will make the boat launch ramp safer and more navigable. Upgrades include enlarging the maneuvering area in the basin by 80 percent, replacing the worn-out launch ramp, increasing the lengths of the boarding floats, and installing public docks, public walkways, adjacent parking and restroom upgrades to current Americans with Disabilities Act Standards.
The Port of San Diego appreciates the public’s patience during completion of this important public improvement project. Please visit portofsandiego.org/sibl for more information and updates.
