Liberty Park Boat Ramp final preparations

 

Liberty Park - Clarksville MarinaClarksville, TN – As opening day for the Liberty Park boat ramp and boat docks grows near, TMS Contracting employees and City employees were hard at work Thursday, May 26th with final preparations.

Around 1:00pm, TMS Contracting, launched a Crestliner pontoon boat on loan from Bill Roberts Thunder Road Marine (located at 1018 South Riverside Drive), to do some work on the Marina Basin. This makes the Crestliner the first boat launched from the Liberty Park boat ramp.

“Today we are moving the turbidity barrier and opening the Marina Basin to the Cumberland River.” stated Kyle Jones, Project Manager with TMS Contracting. “Later today, city employees will use this boat to put out a couple of buoys.” The turbidity barrier is used to prevent the migration of sediment from a work site like the Marina Basin, into a larger body of water such as the Cumberland River.

City employees were on site cleaning some areas and placing new road signs pointing the way to the boat ramps. Later in the day, around 4:00pm, the Crestliner was back in the water as Kyle Jones took a city employee around the Marina Basin to place two “Slow No Wake” bouys.
