A construction barge is removing the DeHart’s marina in Auke Bay this week. The work is the first phase of the Statter Harbor master plan.

CBJ Port Director Carl Uchityl expects the project to be complete by May of next year.

[quote]At the Statter Harbor facility we’re decommissioning the DeHart’s marina. And so what you see down there is a construction barge from Pacific Pile and Marine of Seattle. And what they’re doing this week is demolishing the old facility and once that is cleared out. They’ll remobilize with two new floats that will be attached to the existing Statter Harbor facility. And that’s where we’ll move the harbor patrons at the old DeHart’s into the new facility at Statter Harbor.[/quote]

In addition to new floats at Statter Harbor, other repairs and additions will be made, including a new fuel float.

The Statter Harbor Master Plan has four phases. Phase 2 and 3 is a new boat launch, additional parking and a new haul out facility. Phase 4 is a long term plan to add a commercial float to support whale watching boats and fishing charters.
