Bear Creek Boat Launch Design & Reconstruction

Bear Creek Boat Launch Design & Reconstruction

Project: Funding, Engineering, Design

Client: Town of Ontario, NY

Contact: Jim Oberst, P.E.

Description: Along a picture-perfect stretch of Lake Ontario shoreline, the Town of Ontario has long maintained a muchused
public park and boat launch at Bear Creek Harbor and Memorial Park. The scenic spot, however, had begun to show serious signs of deterioration. After several seasons of historically high lake levels and storm-related wave surges, weather impacts and general decay had taken a toll and resulted in cracked concrete slabs and corroded cable ties.

The Town of Ontario sought to improve this popular community resource and selected MRB Group to redesign the boat launch to accommodate three lanes of vehicular traffi c and improve the driving surface. Additional goals included replacing and/or adding concrete retaining walls; and installing a new launch dock for recreational motor boats, canoes, and kayaks.
