DOVER – Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary Shawn M. Garvin was joined today by State Senator Colin Bonini, State Representative William Carson, Town of Little Creek Mayor Glenn Gauvry, and DNREC staff for a site tour of the Little Creek Boating and Fishing Access Area, currently under construction.

The new access area will consist of a paved, single-lane boat ramp with a floating aluminum courtesy dock for boats and kayaks, an 80-foot aluminum fishing and crabbing pier, and a paved parking lot with up to 21 spaces for vehicles and boat trailers. The Little Creek Fire Department emergency response boat and a Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police patrol boat will also be docked at the facility.

Funding for the nearly $1.5 million project comes from the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration grant, state recreational fishing license funds, and $200,000 in state Bond Bill funds, the latter of which Rep. Carson helped secure.

Weather-permitting, construction completion is anticipated by spring 2019. This new boating and fishing access area will be managed by the Division of Fish & Wildlife and supports the Delaware Bayshore Initiative by enhancing outdoor recreation access and supporting local communities.
