Bye, bye MAIDEN!!! Come back soon!
Rowing dock damaged at HRMM
Unfortunately the dock cannot be used AND the city dock under the Wurts Street Bridge is no longer an option due to the repairs being done on the bridge overhead. The only options for crew boats is to trailer to Kingston Point Beach. Other rowers and paddlers can use the beach or the Sleightsburgh boat launch.
Rowers docks under the Wurts Street Bridge were removed
I have noticed the docks under the Wurts Street Bridge are missing so I asked what was the plan for them. These are the only truly “public” docks with access to the Rondout Creek here in Kingston.
The City sought and received a DEC grant to replace the public launch at Dock Street. Julie Noble is Project Manager for this project. At this point the City has gotten into contract with the State. The next step is stakeholder outreach, then design, procurement and installation. Of course, installation cannot happen until the Wurts Street bridge is complete.
