What’s the status of the renovations of the park and boat ramp at Dram Tree Park?

Ken Little

City of Wilmington spokeswoman Malissa Talbert says Progress Energy is still conducting an environmental cleanup on the property, which is the site of a former manufactured gas plant.

“At the same time, the city is making repairs to the boat launch, including a new bulkhead,” Talbert says.

The project is scheduled to be completed in July.

    It doesn’t look like everything is even close to complation and with so many boat ramps closed, where else can we drop a larger boat? Does Progress of COW have an actual completion date of Dram Tree park?
    (And why do they wait till summer to close boat ramps around here anyway)

    Last week, I stopped at Dram Tree Park. Previously, I stopped about three weeks prior.
    While the fence was open, I saw no employees, no crew, and little to nothing had changed.
    I stopped in next door to Cape Fear River Watch. They have no idea when it will be open again either. Work apparently was supposed to have been completed or in its final days by now.
    That leaves only ONE access point at the Cape Fear River in Wilmington, which is off of River Road for SMALL boats, and has no dedicated trailer parking.
    So the question still stands, when will work at Dram Tree Park be completed? It doesn’t look like any time soon…
