Old Highway 90 Boat Launch to Close for Repairs on Feb. 3
The Old Highway 90 Launch, located off Old Highway 90 in Vinton, will be closed beginning Monday, Feb. 3, for repairs.
The project consists of the removal of the existing concrete ramp and sheet piling and the installation of a new concrete ramp, new vinyl and steel sheet pile walls, new pile supports, new framing and new composite decking for the wharf area.
Also, screened and compacted dirt and crushed stone will be installed to prevent erosion around the ramp.
The project is estimated to last 120 days.
“These repairs are much needed and once completed, the launch will not only be more user-friendly, but it will also be brought up to current design standards,” said Judd Bares, District 12 Police Juror. “We realize the closure will be an inconvenience to residents who use this launch, but once repairs are complete, we think everyone will be pleased with the upgrades.”Keiland Construction is the general contractor. Charles Ladner and Associates is the project engineer.
