San Diego Facility Closure

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility will be closed after Labor Day weekend until March 2018 to allow the Port of San Diego to finalize the improvement project.

The closure, which will begin September 5, will enable crews to continue work on jetty removal to make way for a new concrete breakwater and walkway.

Once completed, the Shelter Island facility will have new lighting and signage, longer boarding floats, a bigger maneuvering area in the basin, walking platforms with viewing areas for the public and restrooms, walkways and docks that better accommodates those with disabilities.
