When will the Fort Fisher ramp, at the end of U.S. 421, be started?

Ken Little

Work on the N.C. Wildlife Commission project is scheduled to begin in September and be complete by November, says Erik Christofferson, division chief of engineering services for the state agency.

The boat ramp area, at 2514 S. Fort Fisher Blvd., will be closed during the construction phase.

The ramp will undergo major renovation at a cost of $300,000, Christofferson says.

Various state and federal permits have to be secured before the work can begin. That process is nearly complete, wildlife commission spokeswoman Carolyn Rickard says, and with that the work will begin in the fall.

    I believe this is just poor planning to close all boat accesss at Carolina Beach,N.C. at one time. We have already gone through the whole summer with the State Park boat ramp closed,causing a over crowding of the Anne Street boat landing. Why has all work stopped on this landing now?
    Plans to close the Anne Street Wildlife Landing this fall will be more than just a inconvince,their are quite a few inshore & offshore fisherman that depend on these ramps for access to make a living !
    These Wildlife access ramps do need renovation as the Fort Fisher 421 Wildlife ramp has needed work for many years access is limited only now at times just prior to high tide.
    This work should be timed for we do not lose all access to the our waterways at one time !
