**NOTICE TO MARINERS**
The contractor plans to mobilize starting on Saturday, April 6, 2019. I expect actual dredging operations to start the following week. PW will be barricading and placing “no parking” signage at the terminus of Volanta Ave. and the west end of Fairhope Docks. Contractor will be setting equipment and building dewatering structures in these locations. These areas will not be available for parking or access during the dredge project.
Fly Creek channel dredging is anticipated to begin on or about April 6th. Dredging will continue seven days a week for approximately 30 days – weather permitting.
The Fairhope Docks with fuel, Fly Creek Marina and Fairhope Yacht Club will remain open for business during the dredging operation.
You should prepare for delays and plan accordingly. Please monitor channel 16 on your VHF radios for M & N of Alabama operations on site. You must request permission to cross before you enter the area.
The City of Fairhope and the Fairhope Yacht Club have undertaken this joint effort to improve your boating pleasure in our local waters. Please help us by employing safe boating practices and being aware of the extent of this operation. Thank you for your cooperation.
Fairhope Docks, located on Fly Creek at the end of Sea Cliff Drive, is owned and operated by the City of Fairhope which is undertaking a major renovation of the facility. The marina has covered and open slips, as well as a new fuel dock and pump out station. A repair facility is expected to return by 2019. Full bathroom and laundry facilities are available. Fairhope Docks offers long-term slip leases as well as transient slips. Please call the Marina Manager at 251-929-0365 for slip availability and rates.
