The Community Maritime Park Associates has contracted with Davis Marine Construction to build the Maritime Park Breakwater. Like all downtown locations, marinas need protection from the long fetch coming across Pensacola Bay.
The Breakwater matches the exiting Maritime Park bulkhead, with dual steel sheet piles, and a 15-foot wide concrete cap on top, suitable for site seeing. The breakwater extends a total of 412 feet into the Bay and provides protection for the 49 slip day-use marina proposed for the west side of the Maritime Park.
The project was funded by the Community Trust Agency and designed by Baskerville-Donovan, Inc.
Contractor: Davis Marine Construction, Inc.
