Thunder Bay – Marina Park Boat Launch Construction Delayed

Marina Park boat launch parking lot construction delayed

Construction at Thunder Bay’s Marina Park boat launch parking lot has been delayed, the city said Friday.

The parking lot at the boat launch — located at the southern end of Marina Park — has been closed since Monday. The project involves repaving the lot and redoing the curbs. The city said, when complete, the lot will have a different layout, as well.

However, the recent rain has caused a delay in the project, which was originally scheduled for completion on Friday.

Now, the city said, it likely won’t re-open until the middle of next week, but a specific date wasn’t provided.

The city’s other boat launches remain open:

The Neste Boat Launch, located on the Kaministiquia River at the end of Mountdale Avenue
The Current River Boat Launch at Fisherman’s Wharf off Cumberland Street N.

No surprise here.  The rain was forecast for over a week.  I don’t believe anyone, including City of Thunder Bay officials as well as the contractor, really thought that the parking lot would be open this weekend.

Another impossible-to meet-scheduled completion date for a paving contract set by the City of Thunder Bay.  Not the first and not the last.
