Construction on the expansion of the Fort Morgan Boat Launch began this week, according to the Alabama Marine Resources Division.
The department posted on Facebook Friday that the first of two concrete slabs were poured Thursday and the second one will be poured Friday.
Once the slabs are ready and dry, they will be pushed into the water to form the new ramps. After the ramps are in place, additional construction will be down on the bulkhead and pier at the ramp.
The total renovation will include the replacement of the two existing launch ramps and one finger pier by installing two double-lane ramps and three finger piers.
The Fort Morgan Boat Ramp is located off Highway 180 (Fort Morgan Road) at the Fort Morgan Historical Park.
