The City of Newburgh’s Boat Launch and Parking Area on the Hudson River located at the end of Washington Street will be temporarily closed to the public starting on Friday, December 4, beginning at 7 a.m. to facilitate the removal of a barge that was in use this week for a City of Newburgh construction project.
Ongoing design work for the future Newburgh Landing Pier required a floating barge to facilitate the drilling of soil borings and geotechnical investigation work which was successfully conducted by Atlantic Testing Laboratories (ATL), a sub- contractor for the Newburgh Landing Design Engineer, ATANE Consulting.
The closure of the boat ramp is part of ongoing design work to facilitate the reconstruction of the Newburgh Landing Pier. ATL will be utilizing a crane in conjunction with the City’s boat ramp and parking area to remove a barge that was deployed in the Hudson River earlier this week on Tuesday December 1st. The barge allowed access to the areas around the existing Newburgh Landing Dock to conduct subsurface soil investigations of the river bed to gather information that will be utilized in the design of the future Newburgh Landing.
The City of Newburgh will issue another notification when access to the boat ramp and parking area is once again permitted. Please contact the City of Newburgh Engineering Department at (845) 569-7447 with any questions or concerns.
