Manchester dock closed Thursday for south dock replacement

Note, 4:10 p.m. Wednesday: Just got word that weather Thursday, with high swells, will prevent installation of the dock, which has been rescheduled to Friday.

The Manchester dock and boat launch facility will be closed Thursday as the Port of Manchester replaces the south dock.
Both the north and south docks will be off limits so crews from Marine Floats of Tacoma have room the maneuver, said Dennis O’Connell the port’s contract administrator. The north dock will reopen Saturday, if all goes well.

The port commission approved the contract with Marine Floats in June to replace the deteriorating south dock, installed in 1996. A grant from the state’s Recreation and Conservation Office covered 75 percent of the total cost, $128,954. The port contributed a 25 percent grant match, covered through its property tax levy and boat launch fees.
The port will seek RCO grant funding to replace the north dock in 2013. The north dock was built in 1998.
