ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WKRG) The Baldwin County Commission is moving forward with the development of the ICW Boat Launch Project. Commissioner Skip Gruber says a contractor has been selected and construction is expected to begin in July.
The 45-acre site just west of the toll bridge on the Intra Coastal Waterway in Orange Beach will be home to boat launches as well as fishing and staging piers, gazebos, a wharf area, restrooms and parking.
Once construction begins it is expected to take about eight months to complete.
The multi-million dollar project will allow boaters access to the ICW, Mobile Bay, Perdido Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
