St. Albans Parks & Recreation Department announced recently that the new boat dock & launch ramp renovation project is set to begin construction soon at St. Albans Roadside Park. This upgraded boat launch ramp, courtesy dock, and nearby areas, designed by Chapman Technical Group of St. Albans, boasts significant accessibility and convenience improvements from the current one. Upgraded features include an extended boat launch ramp, new courtesy dock, ADA-compliant sidewalk, and parking features, enhancing accessibility and usability for everyone.
The new boat launch ramp will be extended 15ft beyond the current launch ramp and will have rip rap installed to ensure a smooth transition into the water. The new courtesy dock will feature 70ft of decking accessible by a newly installed ADA-compliant sidewalk. The completed project will add additional parking with more handicap spaces along the lower portion of Roadside Park.
Landcore Builders, a construction company, based in Milton, has been awarded the project and is expected to complete the work by January 3rd, 2023.
The lower portion of St. Albans Roadside Park will be closed to the public to allow for construction to be completed. Access to the lower portion will be prohibited until construction is completed.
The renovation of the boat launch ramp, courtesy dock, and nearby areas at St. Albans Roadside Park will be a great addition to the park. The new and improved facilities are sure to be popular with boaters, fishermen, and nature-lovers who enjoy spending time on the Kanawha River.
