DNREC announces extension of Augustine Beach Boat Ramp intermittent closure for maintenance dredging through Aug. 1
DOVER – The intermittent closure of the Augustine Beach Boat Ramp near Port Penn and adjacent intertidal beach located on the south side of the existing rock groin has been extended through Thursday, Aug. 1 to complete maintenance dredging of the boat ramp access channel that has been delayed due to equipment issues, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today.
During this time period, the boat ramp will be closed from 8 a.m. each Monday until 5 p.m. each Thursday, reopening from 5 p.m. each Thursday until 8 a.m. each Monday. The site parking lot will remain open for the duration of the dredging project.
Weather permitting, the project is expected to be complete, with full access restored, by Friday, Aug. 2.
Boaters who regularly use the Augustine Beach Boat Ramp may opt to use the Fort DuPont Boat Ramp, located approximately five miles north in Delaware City.
