Monroe County Project Management will begin boat ramp repairs and construction of a new pier at the County-owned Big Coppitt Key boat ramp, located on Barcelona Avenue at Gulf View Park. The ramp will be closed Monday, April 8 through the end of July.
Boat ramps in the area include: Geiger Key boat ramp, located next to Geiger Key Marina and the Key Haven Road boat ramp. Boca Chica boat ramp, at Boca Chica Naval Base Marina, is available for active or retired military.
A Land and Water Conservation Fund grant from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is assisting with the $252,000 project to repair the ramp and build the concrete dock.
