On Sept. 20, a ground-breaking ceremony was held for the Ingalls Avenue Boat Launch along the Hudson River in Troy.
The site will enhance 500 feet of Hudson River waterfront to improve access to the waterway south of the Troy Federal Lock and Dam for motorized and non-motorized watercraft.
The Ingalls Avenue Boat Launch will feature a concrete boat launch ramp, floating dock and kayak launch port. Additional upland improvements include new sidewalks, lighting, driveways and bio retention areas to help divert storm water from the local sewer system.
Preliminary site work was started in August, with in-water construction scheduled to occur beginning Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, 2018. The city expects to complete the project by summer 2019.
