DESCRIPTION: SCE was selected by the State of New Jersey, Division of Property Management & Construction as the consultant for design, permitting, and construction administration services for the design of a new boat ramp and floating dock, new access paths, and parking facilities for vehicles with trailers and parking for vehicles with roof top mounted boats. The design of the boat launching ramp will be a precast concrete ramp that will minimize site disturbance and be a cost effective solution to meet the boating needs of the public. Facilities for parking will be provided and pedestrian access will be provided to allow boat ramp facility users to access their vehicles at the adjacent parking area.
The existing freshwater wetlands were delineated on site and permit applications for wetland disturbance to construct a boat ramp and dock and permits for wetland crossings were prepared. Additional studies and calculations were also prepared to address regulatory compliance requirements for the NJ Highlands Council and the NJDEP Flood Hazard Areas, and the Morris County Soil Conservation District.
The design of the facility is underway in the summer of 2011, with construction anticipated in early 2012.
